Description The Great White egret, photographed here by Marsha Carson, is the largest egret in North and Central America. It is sometimes confused with the Great White Heron in Florida, which is a white morph of the closely related Great Blue Heron. Great egrets are distinguished by their yellow, black-tipped bill and black legs and feet. The Great White heron, on the other hand, sports a solid yellow bill and yellow legs and feet.
Marsha Carson Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement The home of Marsha Carson and her husband is warmed by the resident dog and cats who, along with their foster rooster, have inspired many a photograph. Though Marsha especially enjoys photographing wildlife and landscapes; in her collection you’ll also discover national landmarks, flora, domesticated animals as well as abstract works.
Utilizing a fresh concept created by Photo Art by Carson Heaton, much of the abstract work presented involves the placement of one or more original photos within a framed area, creating interesting and sometimes perplexing juxtapositions.
The resulting photographic compositions are referred to as “Photo Quilts”. They are created by piecing together Photo Art’s original photographs to achieve satisfying color or geometric patterns much like one would use to accomplish a fabric quilt.
While work is performed on a computer; no computer program that “does the work for you” is employed. Each Photo Quilt is individually hand-quilted.
Marsha invites you to enjoy her Photo Art and hope you find it to be thought provoking and perhaps inspiring. Best of all - maybe you'll find a smile!
