ACE Egret

Egret Quick-Draw at Southeastern Wildlife Exposition____18x18___sold
Many art events have a "Quick-Draw" event. Artists get one hour to complete a painting, a few minutes to frame it, and then the works are auctioned off for the benefit of a charity or the event itself.
I LOVE these quick-draw events because they feed my competetive nature. Competing against the clock, on a fairly large painting(18x18 canvas size) is a little bit of an adrenalin rush!
This one above is an egret nestled aagainst the grasses in the low country at ACE Basin, near Charleston, SC where I painted last year after the show :)
Tonight was the soire....AHHHH, OYSTERS!!

Glad to see you posting again. The colors in the water are very nice. I can tell you really know your birds.

Oh how I wish I could be there with you - I love Charleston and the low country. I hope you have a marvelous time - this painting is GORGEOUS!

well, Robin, we will just have to go out there and paint (and eat!!!)
some day! I would like to see it in the spring/summer...but if we do that, PLEASE remind me about the alligators! This time of year they are still "slowly" waking up from the cold :)
