I’ve worked on this one throughout the week. Finishing it this afternoon. My soundtrack was the Grateful Dead from the County Coliseum in El Paso, TX 11/23/73. Click the picture for a link to a soundboard copy of the show.
I made a Barn owl in a similar fashion a few months back, I liked that result so I went for a raptor. I title it as a hawk, but it has more golden eagle traits.
Something I enjoy about both drawing birds and listening to music (Grateful Dead) is there is a deep well of inspiration.
Raptors and song birds, dead shows from 73 or 89.
warblers and crows, Dead from the Cow Palace in 74.
You get the point.
I frequent Archive.org a lot largely for Grateful Dead family bands but also I find new bands all the time.
Sun so hot, clouds so low, the eagles filled the sky…
