In the Hawk House (12 by 16" watercolour on paper)
A painting inspired directly from the Strathcona Raptor Shelter located east of Edmonton, AB. A place where I have spent so much of my time at volunteering and learning about birds of prey, especially in my later teens. In one of the outdoor flight aviaries there is a building connected to it which provides shelter for the birds during bad weather while they are recovering from their injuries, this building is referred to as "The Hawk House". Here you will find mostly hawks and eagles on just about any given day. The weathered interior of this building has always interested me...along with the birds inside of it such as this immature Bald Eagle.
