The Falconer


The Falconer, 27" x 40", oil on canvas, completed October, 2010.
Crumbling walls surround an eroding town. A blind man walking along the sidewalk touches a shadow which cuts across the street through a healthy grove of trees. Sitting on a limb, a falcon is perhaps leading him to his destination. Although the man appears vulnerable from his impaired eyesight, the same cannot be said about his vision.
