Piercing Eyes

Mikawoz Piercing Eyes

This full-bodied eagle was a photograph taken north of Winnipeg in Little Deer, Manitoba, Canada. It is beautiful and stunning. I did an abstract head drawing in coloured inks. It is combined in the computer as a new image.

Solo Bald Eagle

This is one of the best photos I have of a solo Bald Eagle.  The background was just perfect.  I also like the way the plumage is gently flying in the air.  Its beak is perfect for what he needs to do.  The eye is piercing.  Love this photo and the detail.

Did you know that both sexes of bald eagles have the same colouring for plumage?  The difference is that the female is actually a bit larger.  Eagles have excellent eyesight.  “They have two foveae or centers of focus, that allow the birds to see both forward and to the side at the same time.”

Giraffe Drawing

This drawing is simply to show you after all the abstracts that I do, that I can do a traditional rendering or drawing of an animal.  I realize that some of you who have seen my work but do not understand “abstract” art wonder if I can “really” draw.  In this case, this is a giraffe with a little bird on its back that I quickly sketched up.

I remember a time when my high school art teacher was promoting me doing abstract art and I remember fighting it “tooth and nail” thinking that the person really could not draw.  I just did not understand at the time and I was not into experimenting back then or even symbolism as much.
