The painting is of a live scene in the marshy area near Palacios, Texas. I was lucky to get a picture taken of the heron before it flew off the branch it was sitting on, partly because the bird had to turn completely around to be able to fly out of the bush it was in. And, the painting displays the bird in a crouched position getting ready for take off. Herons and Egrets are numerous in the Texas Coastal area and this little slough is one of our favorite spots to photograph them.
The painting was created with acrylic paints using palette knifes for tree texture and brushes for the bird and grasses. Blue Heron in the Bush will look great in your home or business.
