"Winter on the Susquehanna" by Debra Tritt Kreiger

"Winter on the Susquehanna" 11" x15" watercolor on 140lb arches paper

I've had these reference photos for some time and knew I wanted to paint this unusual scene. I came across this fellow on a very cold winter day off the shore of Enola. The Susquehanna river was cold, snowy and ice covered. This great blue heron was all fluffed out and ready to take a nap on the icy water. This was just amazing to see.
