Story Behind This Painting: I spotted this blue heron while cycling around Stanley Park in Vancouver during a vacation. I was amazed at all of the waterlilies in this small lake and I stopped to take some pictures. Then I noticed the heron and I snapped two quick pictures and we continued on our ride. Later I realized that one of the photos showed the blue heron having captured a large tadpole. I am often inspired by nature and how a simple day-to-day act can be beautiful. In this instance, the challenge of painting the blue heron among the waterlilies was double the fun!
