Out on a Limb

$650

Oil

3.75″ x 5.75″

This Great Blue Heron is resting on a particular fallen tree that I have painted a number of times. I enjoy painting Great Blues as they are so primitive in appearance. They nest along the James River so I am able to watch them grow into adults developing their long breast, back and head breeding plumage.

I have watched Great Blue Herons from Canada to Florida, to California, and to Alaska. They are very adaptable to many conditions. This particular bird lives along the James River, Virginia near my home. There is a special location where the water flows from the freshwater reservoir into the James River that attracts the fish. Where there are fishes there are birds.
