"Green Heron"

Painting of green heron fishing from a branch.

"Green Heron" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

A striking green heron enjoys a perfect perch just above the water, hidden by reeds. Aren't his feet wild? I never noticed how awkward they are before. Green herons have the most beautiful coloring. They are so shy - I don't think I've ever seen one here in Maine (my dad took the reference photo).

This bird painting would be a perfect gift for a nature lover.

My Landscapes Gallery has more paintings of landscapes and birds.

This original watercolor painting includes a classic double white archival mat and backing board.  It's ready to slip into a standard 12x16" frame (easy to find).

I am also happy to frame it for you in a contemporary silver metal frame with conservation grade non-glare, UV glazing.  The silver is perfect to give it that special finish without distracting.

Framing is a nice option if you're sending the painting to someone as a gift.  Buying a matted painting is also wonderful because the recipient can choose the frame that suits their taste.
