©2010, Helen Read
Matted in white and ready to frame in 11x14" frame

The reference picture for this painting was one I made on a recent trip to South Carolina.  It was beautiful to watch this stately bird slowly, methodically watch for small fish to happen by - and then - suddenly! .... captured.

I love the simplicity of color here. Very soothing. And these big birds are amazing - I grew up in Rockford, IL and have moved many times since I married 20+ years ago. Now reside in central NC and we see so many of these birds. I need to just sit one afternoon on the shore and enjoy them (and bring my camera, of course!).
