12 X 16 Acrylic on Canvas
Blue Heron at Ginnie Springs, Florida.
The water there is amazingly clear and turquoise blue which was very hard to capture.

Thanks, Mark.  Ginnie Springs is truly a gorgeous spot.  The water is an amazing color.  I found it very challenging to do justice to the scene I had photographed!

Hi Sarah, your beautiful vivid colors are so inviting! I claim dibs on the large rock in the foreground to sit on and watch all this.

Thank you, Mary.  Good to hear from you. Glad the foreground looks right to you. I started this one while we were traveling, which is never ideal - and finished up once we got home several days ago. Still not sure it is done, but knew it was time to stop. It is hard to get to a place where I feel satisfied with a current painting.  I hope it means I am still learning and growing!

Beautiful painting Sarah with your immediately recognizable style.  Your foreground details are so realistic.

Thanks, Wenda. Your positive words mean a lot. It is so hard, sometimes, to get a painting to look the way I want. Just need to keep on painting!

Thank you, Susan. It was such a beautiful spot, but so much harder to paint than I thought it would be.

Sarah, you did some amazing detail in this painting!  And the turquoise water is beautiful along with the reflections.
