Coopers Hawk graphite miniature 3.5 x 2.5"

This guy was rather a quickie. He's just graphite after all...no color to worry about. I love drawing and this hawk and old oak tree allowed me to indulge in textures and value range like no other! I may have to do another pencil drawing as this one was so satisfying and fun!

Guy! How very thoughtful of you! Thank you! And after this long, dreary winter a sunshine award is just the ticket to brighten my blog! I am honored to receive an award from such an accomplished artist! Now...to pass it on...hmmmm!

Dear Jyothisethu! I find it quite amazing that you have seen my blog all the way from India! Thank you for stopping in and for leaving such nice comments!
I have never traveled to India but would love to some day. I can only imagine the numerous opportunities to paint such colorful and beautiful scenery. And wouldn't it just be delightful to paint a series of paintings of women in their gorgeous saris sharing a pongola meal?!Heavenly!
Thank you for dropping in and giving me the opportunity to dream a little!

Roger! Give me a call, (did I send you my # earlier?) I'd love to meet up with you!
