"Great Blue Heron"

The Blue Heron had captured my attention and imagination as I strolled the riverpaths over the winter months. I pulled out this old embossed linocut and had it framed for current exhibition, replacing "Chopsticks" at NAL. I"ve been watching as a white egret is nesting at the ponds near my home and this morning when looking for her I noticed a blue heron somewhat hidden by colors nesting not far from white egret. I will need to pull out the old binoculors and hope to see some chicks this spring yet!

"Saturday Afternoon"

Another picture on exhibit this month. Currently available for sale at Naperville Art League. Open Wednesday through Saturday.


Entered this drawing in current Naperville Art League exhibit called "Jitters" and a very kind and thoughtful artist purchased it on opening day. Ecstatic. Replaced it with "Great Blue Heron" embossed linocut for remainder of exhibit.
