Here is the Heron all finished! It was a little challenging for me to make such a dark painting- hopefully it's not too dark. I just love Great Blue Herons. They nest around Steamboat in the spring. I always feel extremely lucky when I see one flying, fishing in the river, or sitting on a nest high up in a cottonwood tree.
This week's Illustration Friday topic is Tree and I had a great time carving this tree! You can see what it looked like on the block in the blog post below.
