I do not know what the original Phil has predicted, but in Italy the weather is terrible. The drawing is a couple of years ago, on the usual 300 grams watercolor paper. About 20 hours

And, of course, no group of paintings would be complete without at least one raptor :)

Red-tailed hawks are often overlooked when people think of amazing raptors. Usually people think of eagles or falcons, but although red-tailed hawks are one of the most common raptors in North America, they're also quite impressive. They can take a wide range of prey, from rodents to birds, and in my opinion, have some of the most beautiful plumage of any raptor. And it's not just their red tails I'm referring to, but the subtleties of the tones of browns and ochres and creams.

These birds, like the peregrine falcon, have taken to suburban and urban living. A versatile bird, they will nest anywhere from a big tree, to the ledge of buildings. Pale Male is an example of the urban success of these raptors, year after year.

This is the fifth in a series of ten paintings for my thesis, An Illustrative Exploration of Birds of Prey in History and Culture. Here is one of the most common raptors in North America, the red-tailed hawk.

Like barn owls, red-tailed hawks hunt primarily rodents. These larger hawks, however, take larger prey such as rats and rabbits, which can cause serious damage to farmers' crops. Unfortunately, this raptor was incorrectly seen as a 'chicken hawk.' It is very unusual for red-tails to hunt chickens, and if you see one soaring over a farm, it most likely has its eye on a juicy rat on the ground.

A gift painting for Jeanne at Horizon Wings. Jeanne trained this hawk to be an educational bird for another facility. Chaplin (or Chappy for short) has a lot of personality, and early in his training would 'peep' non-stop while on the glove! We figured he would probably do this during his debut educational program, but wouldn't you know it - as soon as Chappy went on stage, he went silent!

Haha, so here's something I've been working on in between things and it's finally finished. All that vermiculation on the owl's feathers was intense.

This is a Great-Horned Owl and of the subspecies, subarcticus. So it's not your typical medium to dark brown in coloration. This one was a very light tan--almost white-ish. I believe it's one of (if not the) largest subspecies of GHO's. Anywho, I saw this guy/gal in my backyard after a bunch of crows gave away its presence. Poor thing just wanted to sleep. :P

Too many hours for a smaller drawing--close to 30 or more would be my guess. 9"X 12" graphite on smooth bristol. Refs are my own.

Here's my entry for the Minnesota Duck Stamp; a pair of Ruddy Ducks. They aren't very good at releasing information so you know who won and all that, but I did figure it out eventually and know I didn't get first, second, third, or fourth. Otherwise, I don't know where I landed (I wish they had some sort of list). Beware of the horrible quality of this thing! It was (again) a very stubborn painting to photograph correctly. Once I get it back, hopefully I'll be able to get a much better image (even with Photoshop help, it still isn't even good). I do actually like how this one came out, however, and for once, didn't agree with the judges opinion on the first place painting. :/

Oil on masonite. 9" X 6 1/2". Refs many thanks to Leslie from WetCanvas. :)

EDIT: I actually just received this piece back today and found out that I had made it to the second round (a first for me).

Another drawing I've been working on this past few weeks in between paintings and other work. For me, anyway, it's difficult to separate buffalos and dust--they always look so nice together! So I figured I'd take that idea to the extreme and really make a dusty environment. This is depicting the buffalo after he has just shaken off the last of the dust from a good roll.
