GREAT BLUE HERON, SNOWY EGRET & GREAT WHITE EGRET – My photographs along with small illustrations of a few of my favorite shorebirds.
GREAT BLUE HERON CHICKS NEST HERE IN SAN DIEGO IN THE VERY TOP OF TORREY PINE TREES. As the chicks get their plumage in, their heads look like they have mohawks of deep cobalt blue! – Japanese brush painting in Sumi Ink with “tea” wash background. 8″ x 10″
I CARRY THIS BEAUTY IN MY HEART – At least once a month I go out on a whale watching trip. A 3-hour escape to the beauty of the sea. I am so grateful to see the lushness of marine wild life that fill my heart with joy. Tho point of these trips is not really to see the whales either, it is to be 8 miles out with the dolphins!
This is the final page in my 2014 Daily Art Journal. I think gratefulness for this year of my life as an artist by-the-sea is a good way to end 2014.
