Original version
  Private Collection - J & M Anderson, Canada.

Sometimes when painting you come to a dead end. In the above painting on the left many variations of tree and rock were tried but none seemed to give me the effect I was aiming for. A total change of thought utilising something which would be found in the bald eagle's habitat has transformed the painting from another bird on a twig to something a little more impressive (I hope). A purist would argue that the totem pole should face the lake as it was there for the prime purpose of welcoming visitors. The face of the earth mother was much more interesting, and what the heck, I'm an artist, and I have a licence (artistic licence). It doesn't always work out for me either, but with a bit of lateral thought you can often find a solution. Take heart.
