Original oil painting Blue Heron bird by Karen Tarlton

Blue Heron

A  Blue Heron stands staunch into the wind.  
The golden eye, fierce and protective, is focused on the far reaches of its watery domain.  Gusts of wind tear at its orderly array of blue-gray feathers so that the plumes are tossed about.  Blue-gray wings , folded tight, are edged with contrasting white and dashes of rust feathers.  
 The overall texture and presence of this majestic bird is that of a powerful, self-reliant Seminole Indian Chief in his prime - seeming to channel  the spirit of the everglades.
In Native American lore the Heron embodies wisdom and patience.

Inspired by a collector of mine
and he won't be the last one I paint!

  3. thanks so much yes it is available there, here is the link: it's in my bird section of my store and hard to identity because the thumbnail just shows the middle of the painting :)
