    1. Oh, it’s not actually a reflection, I have just re-imagined it as one, Kathleen – I snapped a photograph of it as flew overhead and have layered it into some water reflections.
      Thank you, I’m glad you like it!

    1. I relate that ‘wanting to tone things down’ reaction. Although I love vibrant colour in other people’s art, I am resistant to it in my own. I haven’t quite figured out why…
      Thanks, Ashley. : )

    1. Thanks, Vassilis. Where is it you would migrate to?
      I’m hoping to get to Greece one of these days – I hear there is wonderful rock climbing on Kalymnos island! : )

  1. The lines of the water and the subtlety of the heron are so organically transposed. The images feel neither digitally nor chemically overlaid, to me, but rather threaded, embroidered.

  2. You give us all a lesson in observing, looking and using our imagination, Karen. I take my hat off to you. You are really outstanding.
    Love, Dina

  3. Beautifully realised. Your work has such a distinct aesthetic, Karen. I love the balancing act between poetry and science – and seeing which way you’ve tipped the scales.

  4. Amazing images and textures that allow the viewer to read into them interpretations and layers of meaning. As well as metaphors of absence – mirror and shadow I recall seeing textural imagery like these water reflections as I flew over the dry Australian continent. The water texture morphed into an aerial view of salt pans and mud flats with the heron cruising below. They remind me of Japanese Wabi Sabi aesthetic.

  5. How gorgeous – i love the idea of the water reflecting all time passing, all those quiet events we may miss..I wonder where that blue heron is flying now!

  6. somebody may have said this already but some ancient empire, somebody with a decorated fan, mountains, water, clouds….it’s like you’re revealing a feeling from long ago
