Here's another large painting that is kind of a hybrid of my representational and abstract styles. We often see blue herons on our walks along Salmon Creek. Instead of painting one with naturalistic colors, I had a vision of a true BLUE heron. Somehow I think it works, juxtaposed against the abstract energy of marks and textures in this painting.

Yes it works Don and reminds me of Hockney in its vibrancy and energy.

That's very appreciated, Sheila--thank you.
