You definitely have a way with wildlife... interesting composition.

WOW Sharon, this is fabulous!!
I think the wood wall behind would give it some character if it was more weathered and notted.. looks too clean and new yet. Just a thought.
I love it though, great job on the hawk too!!!

Very, very nice Sharon. Stark beauty, the fowl is amazingly done but then you are an amazing artist.

Thank you everyone. This one was easy to do after doing it as an atc.
Nancy, the far eye is actually in shadow in the reference picture and you don't see it at all, I took a little artistic license and put it in lightly.
