Heron Park

Park Entrance

Lilibeth André, "Heron Park I", 12x16, Oil.

Here is one of the landscapes I painted. This is the entrance to Heron Park, a small public area where three ecosystems come together. This park is an example of the great natural environments that abound within a short drive from downtown Houston. The park is a perfect example of prairie, savannah and estuary where egrets, herons and many song birds can be seen. I also saw a great blue heron standing very still by the edge of the water.

The morning was overcast. Quite a bit of fog had set in overnight. Luckily it wasn’t raining although rain water still puddled the path. I set up my easel at the edge of the bayou and captured some of the grasses, shrubs and trees in the background in the oil painting. The bayou is to the right and in the background you can see a small bridge across the water. Even though it is winter, we have had a wet and warm fall so you can see some fresh green growth along the water’s edge.
