Tanglewood Touchdown - Sharp shinned hawk on old dead tree by C. Frederick Lawrenson
  Tanglewood Touchdown  (2010)
Subject: Sharp shinned hawk on old dead tree
Dimensions (inches): 24 x 30
Medium: acrylic on masonite
Description: While hiking at the Tanglewood nature Center near Elmira, NY, we walked by this magnificent old tree that had obviously died and been stripped of its bark long before it finally fell into this precarious position. Just as I was walking past this decaying sculpture, a young sharp shinned hawk flew right over my head, probably heading for one of the many birdfeeders on the property. These agile hunters love to hang around birdfeeders, but not for the seed. I loved the abstract configuration and spiral cracking in this giant edifice as it was slowly being reclaimed by nature, and I could just imagine the sharp shinned hawk touching down here to use it as a lookout perch. This painting was selected to the 2011 Paint America top 100 touring exhibit.
