This beautiful bird was seen in the Japanese Gardens in Ft. Worth, Texas. The painting is of a sketch and photograph of the Heron , but the background is from my imagination.
While painting on this canvas I did not have a subject in mind. I was more interested in the various mediums I kept applying so I would say I was working intuitively. As I progressed I began to notice circles appearing. I thought this must have something to do with my current life. My projects are many but never completed. I am running around in circles.
The fun and discovery of summer adventures create special memories, sometimes not literal but always with focus on the experienced moment.
This painting was taken from one of Henry’s photos from his summer travels.
