An Egret for Today
Today's 5" x 7" oil study for my 75 for $75 project is an egret. It was inspired by the Blackwater Refuge in Cambridge, Maryland - where I saw a dozen or more egrets feeding in a small marshy area of rust colored grasses and reeds. The image has stuck in my brain so I had to paint it.
