Art: The Hawk and the Nightingale by Artist Danielle Y. Reeder
Based on the Aesop's Fable "The Hawk and the Nightingale". "A NIGHTINGALE, sitting aloft upon an oak and singing according to his wont, was seen by a Hawk who, being in need of food, swooped down and seized him." I tried to give the feeling of the nightingale singing his beautiful song, using creative license, I accomplished this by use of colorful and flamboyant plumage. I wanted the viewer to have the feeling of careless joy at just being alive and not knowing what comes at you when you are not looking.
