Birdsong, Hawk and Redhead

This work is 10 X 11 inches. It is egg tempera on acid free illustration board.

Falconry is the sport of the wealthy but is has ways intrigued me. The hawk is not a pet nor is it ever tamed or broken. The knife edge balance of the relationship between falconer and hawk is amazing. Sometimes I think of it like an “open” love affair. An odd sort of trusting and respect.

The Potter

This is a small work on acid free illustration board. The size is 10 X 11 inches.
It is listed as gouache but in truth it is egg tempera. There is some egg yolk mixed into the paint to make make it bit easier to work with.

I have always enjoyed the art of potter and ceramics. Pottery ( bowls and jars) often appear in my paintings. This work may be the beginning of a series that I wish to paint with the potter work as a theme.
