"Great Blue Heron" was created by Rossi after her trips to the Florida Gulf Coast specifically Pensacola Beach. She noticed early in the morning the Blue Herons fishing on the shore. She wanted to capture the beauty of this great bird. The Great Blue Heron is not an endangered species, but it is elegant and aristocratic. As the viewer sees the Blue Heron fish on the shore of the beach, he or she thinks of the majesty of nature and the natural ecological balance. The Great Blue Heron is found in the wetlands of North and Central America. He is also found in the Chattahoochee National Wildlife Sanctuary in Roswell, Georgia. This acrylic painting was created for a show at the Chattahoochee Nature Center Shop with Golden Acrylic paints and fine archival quality Arches Aquarelle Watercolor cotton paper made the traditional way with a harmonious natural grain.
