Great Blue Heron miniature

3.5"x5.5" Acrylic on board

Just finished this this afternoon. It's actually more "3-D" than it appears on the computer. It loses something here- the greens pop out from a transparent darkness which just looks a bit more flat here and the heron seems to be closer, more "out there" than it shows here. I really had fun painting this one.

i think it looks pretty out there in the photo as well. Nice painting.

Beautiful! I wish I could see the original, but this is still wonderful.

Thanks much Pat. Just finished playing my harp. :-) Think of you and your Webster often when I'm playing!

Wonderful! You are the 2nd miniature artist I've seen who painted a blue heron this week...There must be some common inspiration!

Lovely Carol! I can't make them look right on the computer either but would love to see yours in real life some day!
