Great egrets are one of my favorite large birds. I often see them on my walks in the wetlands perched on one leg and gazing out over the land. It reminded me of my own need for quiet contemplation at times. And it inspired me to paint this one perched high in the clouds where he could be safe in the stillness to just dream.
