The Soaring Eagle

Eagles are a fantastic subject for woodburning; the smooth lines and delicate feathers. Their powerful wings and beautiful colorings are striking!

I was commissioned to create a custom art sign for LaurieRyan, for display at vending booths. Laurie already had the great image of this soaring eagle, and I had just the right signboard for the project.

Using an arched plaque, which are usually hung above doors, the eagle was positioned so his wings cover the sign and make for a captivating focal point.

Tiny details in the shading and texturing of the feathers give it a realistic touch. The bright white head and tail feathers of the eagle are sharp contrast to the wood and really pops it!

The title follows the arch, and the tagline trails along behind the eagle.

I'm very proud of The Soaring Eagle sign

My brother always had an affinity with eagles. I wonder if that has any direct connection with his carefree spirit :) Wonderful work!
