KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

I have been watching Great Blue Herons hunt on the beach quite often in the last few months. Utterly still….and then….KAPOW! They strike their prey in the water. I tried to capture some of that energy here. The flatness of the body, the abstract background, and the refraction of the legs and beak juxtapose with the motion and starkness of the heron’s head–the left side of the painting versus the right side.

It will get the fish!

Remember, there is no definition of art…..
