Standing Buck – 18″x 14″ – Oil

I loved seeing his power and trust, so near to me, yet ready to bolt at any threat. Such majesty. I haven’t seen many bucks this size and this close. A gift.

Red-Tailed Hawk – 48″ x 48″ – Oil

I painted two versions of this bird. He wanted the roadkill, I wanted to get pictures of him. Having a stand-off, we compromised. He gave me photo ops, then I went away and he got the coyote.
