Summer Breeze - Great Blue Heron
It’s a rare moment to be in nature without inadvertently startling a would-be subject even with the most careful of footfalls or paddle strokes. If unsuccessful that quiet, breath-taking, still moment becomes a fleeting memory. This piece is about capturing those remembered moments. Art gives a viewer those seconds and minutes or even days back to notice the details that make those moments so special. Things like the relaxed posture of the heron or the delicate textures hidden in the reflections on the surface of the water. You might even notice the soft, gently blowing feathers caused by a light summer breeze. These are the moments that remind us that we are connected in this beautiful place and I hope to convey how much I cherish these moments in the creating of this piece.
