SOLD The ability of birds to fly has always captivated me, and I often dream that I can fly too. In some dreams I have invisible wings, and in others I can magically float on the wind. I still clearly remember the first dream of flying that I had as a child, whooshing up into the night sky above my home. Is it the over-active imagination of an artist, or something else? I don’t know the answer, but it’s always a thrilling experience.
These little egrets flying overhead were an irresistible subject to paint. Sunlight glowing through translucent feathers gives them an angelic look. Their white bodies in shadow reflect a rainbow of soft colors, contrasting with long black legs and bright yellow feet. I hope this painting brings a sense of peace and wonder to all who see it.
