“This is a painting I did early last year in acrylics of a Great Blue Heron. These prehistoric-looking birds can be found everywhere in Multnomah County; such as along the Willamette River fishing for breakfast; in the fields between the runways at the Portland International Airport, seemingly greeting tourists and returning locals; and flying above the Columbia River in the gorge, gliding through the air for long stretches at a time. I painted this as a tribute to my late grandfather, whom I called 'Happy'. Whenever I see one, I think of him and smile.”
