Flying straight into a gestural abstraction of green and blue acrylic paint a bald eagle kisses the surface water of a lake with her wing tips. I wanted this sudden but mesmeric moment to debut on a serene painterly lake.
I painted the right wing of this female bald eagle touching down into the waters of a lush green lake and abstract background. Bald eagles have have so many feathers that combined their feathers weigh twice as much as their skeleton. If an eagle loses a feather on one wing, it will discard the same feather on it’s opposite wing.
A close up photo of this abstract wildlife canvas art reveals the realistic detail painted in the face of this adult female bald eagle. As the soul of most wildlife paintings special attention was given to the eye of this bald eagle, which can see up to five times further than us and spot prey from literally miles away.
