When I first arrived in California from the East Coast I was stunned by the how vibrantly white the egrets were against their natural backgrounds. More so was the variety of birds that cohabitated with one another in such a beautiful manner. This painting is a sort of coming together of the snowy egret and the great egret. This coming together represents the vision of being with a loved one and having the ability to soar through life while the other is grounded. It is the ability of being together in some ways and still be so very different.

Typically on a painting I work from the background forward, but this painting was completely opposite, having the birds completed I was clueless of what to place in the background. Without knowing what I was doing, I had picked the two complimentary colors blue and orange and set out painting what turned out was to be an abstract sunset. My heart pumped excitedly as I did this, as an artist it is a wonderful exploration to consistently jump from outside our own boxes!
