     “As darkness descends on a pristine lake, a graceful Snowy Egret (Egretta thula) dances across the clouds in the reflection of a concluding sunset. As I sketched all of these elements to use in this painting, I had the feeling of being surrounded by the awe-inspiring vastness of nature and the way it can wrap its arms around you.
To capture the experience and pictures I needed for this design; I ended up going back up a very long and narrow tributary in full dark, in my boat, with only a small floodlight.
