Grassland Harmonies (2012)

$1825 USD
On a trip to southern Alberta during late October of 2010, autumn was sure setting in on the grasslands, and I started to see a great number of rough-legged hawks making their way down from the Arctic. I came across an old busted up cottonwood tree and liked the shapes of it and how it stood out so boldly in the landscape. I took some reference pictures of it and wanted to paint it but wasn't sure what to add in the tree. Then it came to me, a rough-legged hawk of course! I added the small herd of pronghorn running away in the distance to bring some extra life to this piece. When you first look at this painting you notice the tree, then upon more careful observation you see the hawk, then by the time you notice the pronghorn in the distance, they're on the run!
