Before the Storm

Painting completed in: 2019

I had photographed this Eagle’s Nest on the shore of Lake Waco and the two young Eagles were about to fledge and fly away so my friend “Mark Chapman” and I decided to take more pictures. It had stormed the night before and we found the nest down on the ground with one young Eagle trapped beneath it and the other on the ground in shock. With the help of the Park Ranger and Game Warden we rescued the young Eagles and got them to a Wildlife Rehab Center.This painting is a composition from several pictures that i took “before the storm”!
