National Wildlife Art Show
Mister Blue, Great Blue Heron
Oil on Canvas
Mister Blue was juried into a national wildlife art show recently, and he will fly home with me in a few days after spending time with lions, tigers, and bears *oh my* at the Jaycee Center for the Arts in Irving. This regal fellow was painted from a photograph taken by my talented friend Sharon from the blog A New England Life. Take a peep at her bird photography, you'll see why I am so inspired every time I visit Sharon and see her amazing images.
It's wet, chilly, and dark as pitch in Dallas and this cuppa hot mocha coffee with whippy creme is my best friend this morning. Whoever invented coffee, I *heart* them! Stay warm today and give your little four footed friends hugs for me.... My studio assistants are sawing logs, blissfully unaware of cares and woes, and counting the moments until suppertime.
