The Eagle That Soars Into A Blue Sky. (750 x 500mm) Original Oil

“Dawn, a new day, a new beginning filled with both life and death, success and disaster, joy and pain. The warmth of the sun brushes away angry storm clouds illuminating this world in a fresh clean light. A mother elephant and her calf make their way to the river, now flowing with last nights fall, in the endless sky washed clean, a martial eagle circles lazily and calls her mate."

My inspiration for this, my first oil came from the following piece of text:

Even if, bright as a flash of lightening,
Death were to strike you today,
Be prepared to die without sorrow
Or regret, giving up attachment to
What you are leaving behind
Without ever ceasing to recognize
The authentic view of the real,
Leave this life like the eagle
That soars into the blue sky.
