North .American Wildlife
“Quail in the Woods” is a 14″ x 11″ reverse painting on plexi-glass. Among many within the realm of north American wildlife, the quail are a favorite of fowl for hunters in this area. I would suppose that it would be a very specialized type of hunting, but this may be my way of thinking because I have only ever gone out for white tail deer.
However, I do understand the thrill of the hunt, no matter the prey. My own hunting now is for these beautiful North American wildlife to paint, much like a quail in the woods. To see more of my work in reverse painting on glass, go to
Some of my Eagles Painted in Reverse on Glass are larger than others. but they are all of the Bald Eagle species as yet. The reason for this I am sure, is because they are the only species of eagle in this part of New York that has been reintroduced to the area.
The first time I saw one, one of my daughters did not believe me. So I painted it. I am sure she still did not believe me, but I felt better. About two years later it became common knowledge they were thriving locally.
Last year an eagle couple built a nest just a few miles from home, but there were too many fans for those modest raptors, so they moved out. You see, apparently someone was bothering them with a drone, and I heard the male eagle had been injured. I do hope the eagle was able to eat the drone first. I do not understand why people feel the need to bother north American wildlife.
When our oldest grandson graduated and was about to go in the USMC, he told my daughter and son-in-law that what he wanted was one of my Eagles Painted in Reverse on Glass, in red, white and blue. So that was his gift from Grandma. It would be great if all teens were so easy to please with avian art.
The term North American wildlife covers a multitude of species of animal. But how many people spend time and money just to view them in their natural habitat? Countless, I am sure. There is no more exciting a sight than that of an eagle soaring majestically to his or her nest to be with their clutch of eaglets.
Though I did once come face to face with a white tail buck during rut, I doubt It would have been so wondrous had the circumstances been more dangerous.
And then there are those who feed chipmunks and squirrels. some even by hand. Think of the industry of wild bird seeds and feeders, the bird houses. All for people who love to see north American wildlife on a regular basis at a convenient place for them.
Then you have the hunters, who buy their guns, maintain them, pay for the license every year, and never bring home the bacon. ( It’s really about getting outdoors and just enjoying the wildlife they do see. )
Weather they are majestic or meek, large or small, ferocious or timid, North American Wildlife is a huge subject matter that encompasses a plethora of species of mysteries!
