heron w:red osier.tcardGreat Blue Herons are lovely.
Coming upon one in the wild is a wonderful moment.
They are wild.
Elegant. Graceful. Serene. Solitary.
All good things.


I painted this Great Blue on handmade, round watercolor paper because it’s elegant posture reminded me of the early portraits on round canvases by Gilbert Stuart.

Remember the original portrait of George Washington?
Doesn’t this heron have a little bit of the same attitude?

The print is available in two sizes. Both are limited edition reproductions, beautifully printed on high quality paper, signed and numbered by the artist.

The quality of this reproduction looks EXACTLY like the original painting on canvas.

The painting shows an imaginary magical nest built by two blue birds.
The nest sits on top of three of my favorite books: Winnie the Pooh, To Kill a Mockingbird and Roots, Shoots and Wings. The birds have woven their nest from strands of paper with many quotations from MANY books! In order to choose the quotations I posted a request on Facebook and received hundreds of suggestions. Hermione is mentioned. Edgar Allan Poe is quoted. Alice in Wonderland is in there too! Just beyond the nest and birds a field of sunflowers is visible in the distance and beyond that mountains beckon.


• Woven Word Nest is an exact archival (museum quality) reproduction of my original painting.
• It is “gallery wrapped” meaning the canvas is stretched completely around to the back of the print.
• It does not need to be framed. It’s ready to hang with wire and everything!
• But should you choose to frame it, the reproduction can be framed easily either by a professional framer
• Or by purchasing  your own  standard size (16″ x 20″) frame..
