Although I’ve been spending most of my time on the large figurative paintings, I am still working with bird imagery and other pieces based on the natural world. I just finished this drawing, Heron Double-Take. Thank you, Susana Arias for this LARGE sheet of paper!
Midway through this drawing, I thought I’d lost a wonderful beginning, and kept it on my wall for many months, while I pondered. Getting back into it finally, I found some direction and I think it came together in an interesting way.
In 2010, I did an encaustic work with the same heron, mirrored in the opposite direction. Clearly I was not yet done with this idea!
