From the "Little Birds" series—10x8" original charcoal drawing.

I will never get tired of drawing, painting , paper cutting and sculpting green herons! They nest in our back yard near our pond. They are shy and have to sit in the blind to get good views. The coolest thing is how they can look long and lean or short and squat—I call them shape-shifters. My challenge here was to get the essence of this familiar bird with a tight crop, leaving the rest of the details to be imagined. This series is presented on gesso panels mounted to 3/4” New Zealand pine. The image area is highly textured and details are scratched into the dry and liquid charcoal. After a splash of metallic bronze acrylic, the art is sealed with an archival fixative for a dramatic, frameless presentation. Ready to hang as is, or framed as desired.
