The original capture of this bird was taken in Yellowstone on a wet morning just before the massive flooding in spring of 2022. I changed the setting and painted in some rain and other details. It remines me so much of Edgar Allan Poe's poem, The Raven.
Illustrative image of children with their pets having birthday cupcake for their dog's birthday. Crumbs on the ground show that the dog has already ate his cupcake and he's now trying to convince the boy to share his. The cat isn't interested in what she was given and would rather have what the girl has.
The bald eagle in this image is an injured bird who lives in a wildlife park in Nebraska. I painted him into a scene where I imagined he could be free and soar as I'm sure he dreams of. The scene in the background is part of the Grand Teton Mountains found along the Cascade Canyon trail to Solitude Lake.
