The Presidio (Great Blue Heron)

Tsugaru kite–masa/washi, bamboo, nori paste, cotton string Painting – watercolor and gouache Approximately – 40”x30” $350 The Great Blue Heron is the largest of the local herons, standing an impressive 4.5 feet tall. They can be found near both fresh and salt water sources and I have seen them frequently at the Crissy Marsh area. They seem to be the embodiment of stillness, their very presence evoking a zen-state despite passing tourists, bicyclist and kids. Time seems to expand and slow as you watch them hunting, slowly walking through the water or flying gracefully overhead.
