Great Blue Heron (oil)


This is a 11″x14″ oil painting on linen canvas board.  The detail on these magnificent birds make them a favorite subject for me to paint.
Widespread and familiar (though often called “crane”), this is the largest heron in North America. Often seen standing silently along inland rivers or lakeshores, or flying high overhead, with slow wingbeats, its head hunched back onto its shoulders. They thrive in marshes, swamps, shores and tideflats and are very adaptable to their territory.  Often seen foraging in calm waters or slow moving rivers or in shallow coastal bays.  Always on the  lookout for predators they often nest in trees or shrubs near the water.
This painting is also available as a giclee reproduction.
