"When you look at yourself from a universal standpoint, something inside always reminds or informs you that there are bigger and better things to worry about.”
– Albert Einstein
Original piece painted live with oil & acrylic markers.
My last painting of 2012 (and my first painting of 2013) sets the tone for a year of dynamic and reverent animal art...
I saw 67 red-tailed hawks (63 live and four dead) on my drive out to Denver for New Year's Eve...that was a pretty big hint that I had to give this bird its due in my next painting. The hawk is a powerful animal totem, symbolizing vision, truth, and initiative – all good things to hold in heart while setting out on the new adventures that 2013 is bringing us.
The hawk reminds us to nurture our latent power, to notice what others miss, to view our lives from a higher perspective and move forward with bright eyes and a bold heart...
"I refuse to be enslaved by a single perspective."
– Timothy "Speed" Levitch
