This bad-ass heron has a story to tell, and I just had to draw him again.  My mom has taken so many photos of this guy over the years, and I think she captured his essence in this one (so much more at www.janicesanborn.com).  The pattern of feathers on his long neck is like a sleeve tattoo, and he just dares anyone to ask about his wonky leg.  Who knows what happened to him, but I don't think he lets it get him down.  Maybe it's a she?  Now, that would be cool...:). 
Because I'm not a fan of hiding drawings behind glass, I've been experimenting with charcoal on canvas lately.  This one is sealed, varnished, and I think it has a more modern look.  c. Katie Sanborn Daker, 2019
