Painting A Bayou… what I learned from my student.

MOONLIT HERON

Moonlit Heron  20″ X 20″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Just so you know I am an Arizona Artist and have never visited Bayou Country nor stepped foot in Louisiana. However,  I do love all things water, and living on a lake in Michigan as a youth I did see my share of blue herons stopping for a bite to eat during their summer visit.

My talented student wanted to learn about painting with color, and movement so she suggested a bayou scene since she is from that part of the world. As for vegetation on the bayous I was remiss.  I had to admit I didn’t know what trees grew there, nor anything about the low hanging mosses. She taught me a lot when she brought in a beautiful photo-book of spectacular pictures of the Bayou.  I was hooked… and I had to paint that moss, and the heron and the cypress tree. This is why I love to teach, somedays I learn more from my students than they learn from me.

A total departure from my usual Southwestern landscapes.  I hope you like it.
