This image started as a photograph that I took of a Blue Heron while living in my van on the gulf coast of Texas. The name "Fly Away Home" was inspired by the film, Fly Away Home with Jeff Daniels.
This is a water-colored photograph; I figured out years back that since I was always printing my work on matte photo paper, that if I printed my image in black and white that I could watercolor paint and draw right on top of the image. Leaving me with a quite unique result which people seem to love!
*This is a print of the original.
This art print in on a nice thick matte paper that is museum quality; leaving you with a nice flat finish with beautiful deep velvety blacks. My personal favorite thing about matte paper is that you won't leave your fingerprints all over the image while trying to frame it!
*I outsource my printing to a (print on demand) company. So essentially this print does not exist until you order it.
*Everything is a custom / specialized order and for this reason I cannot accept returns; sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
*Please be patient with shipping since these are print on demand / specialized orders it can take a bit longer to receive your print sometimes!
