Bald Eagle.
I loved painting this one and playing with the color temperatures of the late evening light! Kind thanks to Chuck Rondeau for allowing me to use his photo for inspiration.
5"x7" oil on panel.

Edit: This is not necessarily intended to be patriotic, I just love eagles and was listening to a song called "Hope" by Our Lady Peace. When I am painting I occasionally form a strong mental connection with certain songs and sometimes use that as title inspiration.
Speaking of Our Lady Peace: peace, my dudes.

Lovely depth in the eye. It really looks wet & translucent. I love eyes, I'm always sketching them. Great detail on the feathers too, especially those little face feathers. I love how they get all small & wispy. They even have tiny little eyelash feathers. It kind of cracks me up how predatory birds beaks turn into lips. They always look like their smirking a little. I should be a bird watcher I can't get enough of them.

The hope that there're still a lot of good artists on this site, and not worthless nothings that won't change a thing.

I tend to name some of my paintings based on songs I listen to while I create them, I'm not quite sure what your comment means but I do enjoy that people can interpret my work in different ways.
