New Inspiration

This is a painting of a lighthouse on the northern Queen Charlotte Strait near Port Hardy has been in progress for close to a year. Bald Eagles are so numerous in these waters that they seemingly outnumber the gulls. These two eagles are heading out to a feed on a school of bait fish. When these schools are near the surface the eagles seem to spot them and fly to feed from miles away - it's incredible! I am feeling inspired to continue on this painting again after the long layoff. I haven't even looked at it for several months, which gives me fresh eyes to attack the painting again. A big reason for the inspiration is the fact that I am soon heading back up to this area to try and catch some big halibut and some big kings.
