I finally got back into the studio this weekend and spent some time working on a painting of a bald eagle.
A couple of years ago, my husband and I rented a cottage on a pond in Maine. This eagle and his(?) mate lived on that pond. We were fortunate enough to see it fly over and also to be able to photograph it sitting in the tree. It was huge!
The shot I would like to have gotten, was when the eagle flew over my husband when he was fishing, about ten feet over his head. The wingspan was incredible. Where is that camera when you really need it. Hubby wasn't even aware of the fly-over.
I don't know if this painting is done. I need to live with it for a while. But it sure felt good to have a paintbrush back in my hands.
