Along the Fence Line

This spring I was commissioned to paint on a private ranch, north of Austin. The final piece will be a gift to the patriarch of a kind and thoughtful family! It's always an honor to be part of projects like this one. I will share more details on process and the final piece later, but the piece above was one of the small pieces I did for consideration. One of my favorites!

And I do believe that she can stand still enough, for long enough, to catch a little breakfast. Of course for us, her showy white feathers give her away completely. These beautiful white birds are total head turners. They get me every time.

If you like Egrets, here is another...

A Place in the Shade - Figures on Friday
