Artist's Description

Once as I traveled through a quiet evening,
I saw a pool, jet-black and mirror-still.
Beyond, the slender paperbarks stood crowding;
each on its own white image looked its fill,
and nothing moved but thirty egrets wading -
thirty egrets in a quiet evening.

Once in a lifetime, lovely past believing,
your lucky eyes may light on such a pool.
As though for many years I had been waiting,
I watched in silence, till my heart was full
of clear dark water, and white trees unmoving,
and, whiter yet, those thirty egrets wading.
~Judith Wright

Original image is a small portion of a wall mural in my home that I began 5 years ago, done in acrylics, fashioned after an unsigned print purchased personally. Entire mural measures 12 feet long by 10 feet high, and is still a work in progress.
Adjustments have been made to colors through layers and filters, texture has been used.
Texture courtesy of ShadowHouse and Lenabem-Anna
