For this one, "Heron at Sunset", I returned to a more traditional landscape:

Item 7353706669

Under a sunset sky in delicate shades of yellow, pink and blue with fluffy clouds, a lone heron rests on an island on a peaceful lake at Los Gatos Creek Park. This Northern California landscape is is an original acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas (the 3/4" staple-free sides are finished off in blue acrylic) and can be hung with just a nail—no need to frame. It has been varnished with a light spray to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors.

I enjoyed trying a more delicate sky using acrylics. For the zen series, I work in bold colors. This gave me a chance to try some subtlety. I feel this sort of piece would have been easier in oils because of the blending quality.
