|"Seahawk Attack" Original Watercolor 30" x 22" $1,800.00 - click here|
In January 2015 I took on the challenge to paint a bird a day following alphabet. When the day to paint an "O" bird arrived, I was excited to paint an Osprey. I have always thought these are awesome birds, and really wanted to paint one. The photo below of the bird on the perch is about the only reference photo I had taken to work from.

I really wanted to paint the Osprey or also known as the "Seahawk" in action doing his thing. I also thought it would be great to find one catching a trout as I also love to catch trout. One day I was out at Spring Valley Reservoir near Deary, Idaho. I was with my wife Kayaking, fishing, and taking photos. This is when I got the photo of the one above on the branch, I saw him dive and catch fish. It was so neat to see him in action, but my camera could not capture that action.
