Great Blue Heron Fly-on-the-Wall (Quirky Artist Stories Nbr 10)
As a nature photographer, spending time on the water with the beloved Great Blue Herons is a meditation in and of itself. Capturing an image that conveys the experience in the moment is the icing on the cake. And then being able to share my love for these magnificent creatures with others via blog posts or the galleries where I show is the cherry on top of the experience. I think that is a universal for artists – there is the joy of creating , and then the act of releasing the art into the world, followed by watching as a fly on the wall as others respond to the art – whether music or painting or writings – whatever the form. Thanks to Michelle W and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge Cherry on Top.
Thanks to Jen H and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge Details. The detail of the Great Blue Heron feathers in the top photo is taken from one of the photos in my recent show at TCAN. The full image is at left in the bottom photo, taken at TCAN after a concert by the wonderful, iconic, gracious Tom Rush.
From July 1 through July 30, 2016, my Great Blue Heron photographs once again grace the walls of the lobby and theater in a free one-woman show at the Summer Street Gallery, of The Center for Arts in Natick. TCAN has a lively, dynamic lineup of upcoming performing artists.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
