Falcon Hat__falcon, bird, birds of prey,

Falcon Hat__8x6 oil on linen panel_ painted for SEWE, unless you want it first__$190
Steve used to bring his falcon, Emo, out to our farm to fly in the fields. My children were young, then, and LOVED to watch Emo fly. He would chase pigeons, and one time he himself got hit by a was scary, but Emo survived. I painted him from a photo Steve dent me. He has on his little "hat" blinders. This keeps him "quiet" till he flies. The tassles on top are cute, but they are what you hold onto to take it off.
Below is some info about an upcoming plein air event in Texas. Good prize money, great people and the best location in Texas...I hope you artists will come!...I will have more details tthis week...
