Denman Reproductions from GW
“His Property” began on a drive near Tahoe, CA, where I observed a large Golden Eagle mantling prey by the side of the highway. He held his great, outstretched wings defensively over his meal (what it was exactly I couldn’t tell) and stared down at it with a propriety gaze that claimed, in no uncertain terms, that this was his property. Over a year later, a friend who runs Native Bird Connections, a local raptor rescue center, introduced me to a Golden Eagle up-close and personal. A wing fracture made it impossible for him to be re-released, but from where I stood, he’d lost none of his grandeur. Huge, impressive, and intimidating, he was none-the-less nervous around a stranger, but when he calmed down, he perched on his trainer’s arm with an elegance and poise that was unforgettable. At one point he looked piercingly down at the ground, accentuating his beautiful but severe profile ; this pose, elegantly lit from behind to show his glorious mane of golden feathers, reminded me of the encounter I’d had with the Golden Eagle in the wild, and “His Property” was born. I painted him considerably larger than life-size to capture his domineering presence, and “framed” him in a simple, dramatic, non-objective space to present him with the uncluttered, iconic clarity he deserved.
