This painting is the first of a challenge I have given myself for the month of April - paint a painting every day! My friend Linda gave me the idea as she has challenged herself with a painting a day for this month. It will be fun to see how we do, especially on work days. Today I painted this based on a photo my friend Joan took in Sydney, B.C. of a blue heron waiting patiently. It is great to have friends encouraging my art journey.
