"Sentinels" 5x7 acrylic $265
Two sentinels watch over this grassy hill - a great oak tree and a great egret. Although the great egret is only temporary to this spot, it adds a nice tension in the painting. I recently saw this scene on a trip out to nearby Ankeny Hill National Wildlife Refuge and I couldn't wait to paint it because it evokes such a peaceful, solitary feeling.
