I told you how much habitat study, direction of sunlight analyses, close
up photography, detailed pencil sketching and color comparison I did
before I felt I was able to start this painting, you would not believe
me. "One Took to the Sky... " is a scene that I encountered
one day while relaxing in my boat in a cove on a wild river. It was
getting to be late in the afternoon. The Great Egret took wing to venture
off to another part of the river and at the same moment the Red-Bellied
Turtle slid from his log, as if with a retaliating gesture. The flowering
Pickerel Weed made for a great foreground and yes, that's the true color
of the water the way the sky was reflecting off of it that day."
