The Blue heron is unique in that it is native to the entirety of North America. When I was 16 I came upon a heron fishing a cove on Fairleigh Creek on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Although it stood 4 or 5 feet tall , it squawked and took off in a slow methodical flap of its wings . I wanted to get closer but literally 80 yards was where it drew the line. In Minnesota the local fisherman call them "Shy Poke" and there is actually a minnow bucket called " Shy Poke" .They are beautiful and big but weigh up to 7.5 lbs .

I painted this heron to have a partner and was intrigued with the tall vertical format of the canvas knowing there are unique spaces where you may want a piece of art. If you need symmetery there is a companion Heron that could compliment the sides of a doorway , entrance or next to a large tv. Mostly soft neutrals with a touch of blue and sand hues, the sky above reminds you that any minute herons will fly up and away to fish a quieter spot.
