Eagle Sighting

4" x 4", oil on canvas
In Vinalhaven, Maine there's a stone eagle statue right downtown that was originally believed to be carved on the island at the turn of the century during the island's quarrying heyday, only problem is the stone isn't native to the island. Well, it's still pretty amazing....

Nearly done....

6" x 6", oil on canvas
Although my original intention was to head into the vivid pinks & purples with this landscape, I'm liking the olive greens with the soft glow of the yellows, I don't think I've tried this color combination before. Sometimes a painting leads you in a different direction than you had originally planned.
