"Partners in Crime" of three Great Egrets represents over twenty years of work and study of these majestic wading birds. I used references from over twenty years ago of rounding a bend on a Florida creek in a canoe and was greeted by three egrets somewhat back-lit by the sun. I photographed the best I could as I drifted under the branches they were on. The photographs were not spectacular or even of good quality but the images in my mind of this sight ended up on canvas. I was not happy with the background but changed it twice over the years. Having moved to Florida a year and a half ago I tackled the background again and came up with the results seen here. I have finally completed the painting and am pleased with the results.
