This stylized painting of white egrets in a lagoon is inspired by the numerous marshy inlets along the coast in north San Diego county where I live, which are home to herons, egrets and many other water birds. In colors of teal, pale blue, lime green, apricot and orange. This is an original acrylic painting on standard 3/4" deep canvas. Stapled on back with the sides painted to match the image. No frame required. Comes wired and ready to hang. Finished with two coats of UV protective varnish. All archival quality materials. Ships in a box from my studio in Oceanside, CA. © Barbara Blair Lagoon 12 x 12 inches. I like to create artwork that provides a visual mini-vacation that can be experienced at any time, as an escape from the stress of civilization. Whether it’s a scene that transports the viewer to a more peaceful, meditative place in their mind, or a whimsical, joyful image that brings out their inner child, or one with inspiring words that touches the heart, I attempt to create art that has a healing value.
