Make a Splash

"Make a Splash"
Oil on canvas
24inch×36inch

So my husband and I were blessed to have bought our first home two years ago here in the Cariboo region of B.C.🇨🇦 It is a beautiful property teeming with life- complete with a creek running through our backyard. Naturally, this creek is filled with fish which attracts a variety of fishing birds.
I was absolutely star-struck the first time I saw this incredible raptor swoop down with such speed and agility that it seemed so easily to pluck fish out of the water!💦 What a show! I simply could not resist painting such a beautiful, underrated creature! 🎨

The osprey (Pandion haliaetus) is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey. This raptors diet almost exclusively consists of fish.The osprey tolerates a wide variety of habitats, nesting in any location near a body of water providing an adequate food supply. It is found on all continents except Antarctica, although in South America it occurs only as a non-breeding migrant.

At long last my masterpiece is now complete! I am REALLY happy with how this one turned out! This is the largest painting I've done thus far and it was an excellent workout for my artist muscles💪✨

Beautiful Painting.Enjoy your new home.Cheers.P

That..... is a cool piece of work

Wow! Awesome painting! Looks so realistic!

Great eyes! Both the hunter and the hunted. Really expressive.

Awesome painting! When I was a young boy of 11 years old my best friend and I were floating on our backs on a lake in Maine when a bald eagle 🦅 made a dive 10 feet from us and plucked a 2’ long fish from the water. This very much reminds me of that moment! It scared us enough that we swam for the bank. lol
So again this is an awesome painting and very realistic bird and fish. I love the water too.

Absolutely stunning, great work.

Thank you so much for the kind words my fellow artists!! It was a labour of love! My next painting is going to be a very relaxed landscape 🌲

Wow, just magnificent! I'll bet it is even more beautiful in person. I love it!!

Fantastic work.

Love it! The feathers and face really caught my attention and then the salmon!

excellent .. so good .. well done .. Happy Painting
