This amulet art piece is of a Great Egret (Ardea Alba) looking at its reflection in the water. The purpose of the amulet in the painting is to find, see, and recognize yourself. It’s painted on thick cardboard (the back of a watercolour paper block) in acrylics. My daughter helped me decide what should be in the painting. The blackbirds were her idea. The landscape was inspired by the area around Opphaug on the Norwegian coast.
