Although most of my paintings are based on a number of photographs often taken during different experiences in nature, once in a while I see a subject that is a “no-brainer” for a painting. This Heron was in the Galapagos where the wildlife is famously tame. It came striding right past us on a beach and I took about 10 shots. The simplicity of the scene reminded me of the cave paintings at Lasceaux. Background would be a distraction. The positive and negative shapes were strong and I was able to play light against dark and vice versa for emphasis. -RB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones. We do not share your information with anyone. If you don't hear back from us within 24 hours, please check your spam folder or feel free to call us at 440-255-1200 / 800-621-1141.
