Red-tailed Hawk (14 by 18" oil on canvas) In Private Collection
This painting was created as a gift for my High School art teacher the summer I was 19. I created this painting during the summer of 2009. My art teacher has been great help to me in the past and I thought I should create a painting for her. I wanted to be certain the painting would turn out nice; this is one reason why I chose to use a Red-tailed Hawk for the subject. Since I am quite familiar with this species and have handled so many of them volunteering at the Strathcona Raptor Shelter, I felt that I would be able to paint this bird more accurately then most others. Some who know me know my obsession with birds. A Red-tailed Hawk is one of my favourites. I was inspired to paint it standing on the edge of a window on an old run down shack after seeing so many old farmsteads in eastern Alberta.
