Finished Egret painting based on Celeste's photo

Just finished translating Celeste’s Mookherjee’s lovely photo, “Ruffled feathers,” (with her permission), into an acrylic painting, a project begun on May 11, 2012, and finished the 18th.  This was done for a Red Bubble group, Solo Exhibition, where photographers offered a photo to be translated by artists into traditional paintings/artwork.  I did this last year, too, translating Vonnie Murfin's Cardinal, into an acrylic painting by the same name.   I have a frame for Egret, and will evaluate whether it needs some custom finish touches. Then the painting will be for sale, framed, for probably around $250 - $300.
