Great Egret Looking For A Mate - Original Oil Painting On Gold Leaf

Barbara Fallenbaum

The pristinely white Great Egret gets even more dressed up for mating season.  A patch of skin on its face turns neon green and long plumes grow from its back past its tail.   They are seasonally monogamous.  They breed in colonies high up in trees. The male selects the nest sight, starts the nest and then attracts a female.  Saw this one at Ft DeSoto early one morning.  Simply elegant!

  • The painting measures 12” x 16”, with frame 13.25" x 17.25"  x 2" deep.  
  • The frame is solid wood and custom for this painting.  We finish each one with an undercoated metallic glaze and a nice cream crackle top coat, giving an elegant coastal feel.  Each frame is a unique piece of art by itself!
