I did this painting also at Plein Air Easton. It won the Vanishing Landscape Award at the competition and auctioned off for $2,500.00. Not bad for a 9"x12". I stood in a pond that connects with the Chesapeake Bay to get the view that I wanted, and to stay somewhat cool. The tide kept rising as I painted and I soon had to get out while I still could. The egret showed up just long enough for me to paint him in.
Morning Egret, oil on linen panel, 9"x12"
