Avian Art is always basically natural in form. As can be seen in all creatures, their perfection is a work of beauty.
From the small wren to some of the larger raptors, birds are species of perfection.
Where I live in Central New York State we are blessed with a multitude of avian wildlife to observe.
For the first 40 years of my life, I would never have believed that there would be Bald Eagles in this area. That was then.
Since they were reintroduced into the area, they are no longer rarely seen at all.
So, even though some of my avian art in reverse painting on glass is not always as clear as some of my artwork, I can think of no more beautiful and natural subject to paint.
While driving around what the locals here call the back stretch, a road on the north and east side of the air base in Rome one day, I saw an adult Bald Eagle just lifting off the ground with a rabbit in his talons. They were only about 30 feet away from me! By the time I was able to inhale again, it was over. I am truly sorry for anyone who thinks that awful, but it was a magnificent sight to witness!
The reverse paintings on glass that can be seen on my web site are for sale. Please click on the pictures to view details.
