Balance by windfalcon Balance by windfalcon
Neither day nor night, not light or dark,
A gradual brightening and dimming of the sky.
Two pairs of wings, forever dissolving and building
With the birth and death of the sun.


This is a commission for *merimask, who wanted a painting in the same feel as Radiance, but with flowing water and an intertwined great blue heron and great egret. I just love egrets and herons and their long, twisty necks! If Radiance is a sun/moon theme, this painting is a dawn/dusk theme :)

Watercolor and a little acrylic on illustration board, 7.5 X 12 inches

Balance is a word I frequent when addressing many things in life.  This lovely painting gives it an image, powerful!

I'm so happy you like it!  And I'm so sorry for the 3-months late reply D: I finally got a few minutes to go through old comments and realized I never replied to yours!
