My front garden has a tumble-down pond filled with goldfish. One morning the great blue heron came and posed perfectly still outside my window. I didn't realize until he flew away that he had taken all the fish! But I forgave him, because the moment was unforgettable. When he rose to fly away his huge wings covered half the pond, and I felt like I had been visited by royalty. Whenever I am feeling overwhelmed I think of the heron's complete stillness and focus, balanced on one leg. This piece was composed from the photograph I took in that moment and many layers of watercolor and found surface layered in the digital printmaking process. The close-ups show the grain and detail, which resembles a collagraph or mezzotint.
This print is part of a series called "The Gardener's Almanac of Irreproducible Phenomena" in which I attempt to capture the mysteries of my garden as it moves through the seasons.
The finished piece is meticulously proofed and printed on archival rag paper with pigment inks rated to last for 100 years or more. The prints come with a certificate of authenticity verifying the edition number and the edition size.
These prints are traditionally numbered and signed in light pencil with the number on the left and the signature on the right, just below the image. They can be framed with or without a mat.
Packaging Detail: Shipped flat in a sturdy cardboard mailer.
