Wow Carol!! I can feel the movement!

magnificent carol. the bird is beautifully rendered and the background perfectly reflects the speed of the attack.

Oh I remember another one of yours...this is fantastic too, and I don't even usually go for this type of work.. a BIG exception here! The blue is killing, the stop action/blue really riveting, congratulations..-Nick

Stunning!! So glad you included that beautiful rich blue in the water it creates a powerful and exciting environment for a powerful and exciting subject!!

Great work Carol. The color and shading of the eagle are very life like, and the sense of motion is fantastic.

David: thanks for popping by. Speed is good. I am glad you like it.

Marty: actually I haven't posted over there. I didn't think of them :eek: Thanks for the compliments.

Anita: I did sign it, lower left :D From my point of view not well worth waiting for......took waaaayyyyyyy too long. Nearly gave it up with the exception, I am afraid of admitting defeat.

Serena: Hi. Thanks for dropping by.

Caroline: it will be a long time before I do a painting of this size again. My largest prior to this was 24X36. Ha!! I thought I was up to this. All I can say is make sure it fits on your easel. Thanks for the comments.

Hi again Carol........i thought i would hang it on a couple of nails....and tape some paper around for the splashes....well thats the idea...lol...i actually painted 2 thin wooden panels before....forget about that...they were about.....16''x36''....i did them a year ago and they hung in the side windows of my daughters cafe i sold them recently....first ever sale.... :cat:

Congrats on the sale Caroline. The other thing I learnt, if you are going to hang it on a wall, good lighting is a must.

Holy Cr*p, Carol! This is wonderful!!! You really have a nice touch. Background is wonderful and really compliments the bird! Nice movement and great "focal point"!

Definitely a winner!!!

Fantastic Carol!!! You sped to the finish at the end - I am so glad you stuck with it!

Nice work. I saw the real model on the river yesterday. He caught one too. Excellent painting. I envy you. No! Envy is not the word. Marvel at you is better.
