Completed on 1-24-2018 Driving around with Sam the other day a magnificent Blue Heron swooped down in front of my car. I always consider unusual animal encounters some sort of sign. I like to think it means someone is watching out for us all. Just a reminder . Anyway, that's the idea for this painting. Yes Blue Herons can live near the ocean and fresh water. I am working on a series of smaller paintings for now. Thanks for looking!
