Green Heron Father Original Oil Painting

Barbara Fallenbaum

Original Oil Painting of Green Heron.  This small heron is solitary most season and often somewhat secretive.  Seen in the open, it often flicks its tail nervously, raises and lowers it crest.  It is a striking bird with a velvet-green back, chestnut body and a dark cap often raised into a short crest.  I was fortunate the summer of 2020 to have a pair lay their eggs in my backyard.  First I found two eggs on the ground, then they disappeared.  Over the next couple of months I would see the parents in my backyard, catching lizards, catching insects and taking a bath in my spa.  Did not find out where the nest was till after the babies were gone. It was in a prominent tree just outside my studio window.  They had been sharing the tree with some nesting Wrens.  The father standing guard.

  • The painting measures 18" x 24", with frame 26" x 32" x 2.5" 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!
