Birds have always been a passion of mine. My 39-acre property in North Carolina is listed on the NC Birding Trail, and is slated to be left as a bird sanctuary and artists' retreat. White egrets are one of my favorite, possessing an elegance that I strive to portray in my paintings. This painting stresses the softness and beauty of the birds' feathering juxtaposed with the rough, sharp edges of the nest.
