Sitting Pretty

8 x 10 Oil on gessoed masonite

This is a bad photograph, I will hopefully get to do it over, but here it is for now.
A lovely hawk, watching for his next meal up in a bare tree with a wintery sky behind.
What a beauty he was, so regal in his perch!


  1. I love this...the starkness of the tree and winter landscape, contrasting with the fluffy yellow of this hawk, caught in the winter sun. He looks as birds do when they are sitting in the cold air. Great job!

  2. Agree with Catherine. It is a beautifully captured moment. Lovely.

  3. I love this too Mary Anne, I get a real sense of the wintry cold.

  4. The hawk is beautiful, but I LOVE the pattern you created with the tree branches!
