A contemporary glass painting of a Red Tailed Hawk.
This hawk was part of a mosaic in a series that incorporated mosaics with glass painting.
Going to my roots of realistic painting of animals. Except this was painted backwards :)
in the glass painting technique.
I feel it is one of my finer paintings that really captured these beautiful raptors.
Red Tailed Hawks are fairly common in the Tucson desert. True urbanized wildlife, they will soar over traffic, playgrounds, etc. looking for unwary prey. They are Large birds, magnificent.
I had to paint them!
