This is a portrait of one my all time favorite raptors, the Osprey. They are incredible hunters with barbs on the pads of their feet to help them hook on to slippery fish. As such, I played with the title to highlight their prowess over their prey.
It's coming in at 10"x10" with a 1.5" profile on a wood panel. I painted it in 2017 while I was between projects as a way to study the bird while also keeping up with my practice. It's been a lovely addition to my studio watching over me and now it's time to fly to a forever home!
This will be packaged and shipped exactly how I ship work to galleries. Well padded, sturdy with insurance. I'd like to encourage you to save and reuse as much the packaging as you can.
