This drawing was inspired by many walks along the dykes in Brackendale, BC - near Squamish where I spend a lot of my time. I always admired the beauty and grace of these creatures, in awe of their physical size and ability to soar at amazing heights to watch for prey. I walked the dykes of Brackendale a bit more earlier this year when I wasn't feeling well and was living in Squamish. I got a chance to read up a bit more on eagles and the challenges they face as a species. Here's a great site with more info: Brackendale Eagles.

This is a drawing I'd wanted to do for some time, but had the perfect excuse with a very good friend of mine, Negin, getting married to the man of her dreams at the end of July. I finished it just on time in order to be able to give it to them as a gift. This image is now hanging on their walls in their home, and it will likely find a home as well someday up on my own, as its a piece I'm quite proud of how it turned out. I had fun getting creative with their feathers.
