"Hawkeye"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

Our hawk is very fond of our back yard, evidently he likes the menu items. We also have a resident Great Horned Owl, who we named Hooty months ago - so it's only fit we name this guy Hawkeye. Something told me he was prodding me to paint him and out of great respect, I have.

Well, Karin, dog my cats! I was hoping you would paint your red-tail. Any artist who attempts wildlife has to be swept away by the intricacy of the creation. You did exceptional. P.S. I just finished my rendition of your little backyard hawk. Have a sooper New Year!

Karin, this is beautiful. Wildlife is one subject I have never attempted although I am surrounded by it. I am wonering what type of monitor you are using. I don't know much about them and thought maybe you can suggest a brand to get me started on my search.

OMG, he is gorgeous. I'm so glad he talked you into painting him.
