months of study, design and painting went into this particular work.
Relaxing in my boat one afternoon in one of my favorite places, a cove
off of the east side of Silver Lake, I noticed that the water, aquatics,
wildflowers and tree-line were creating a gradient of color. It became
my goal to capture that natural gradient in a painting. I used the color
of the Little Blue Herons to complement the color of the water. The
original was painted with acrylics on Strathmore illustration board,
26" x 39. These Iris's have the same image size."
