This Coopers Hawk was just a phenomenal piece to do for some dear friends! The inspiration for this hawk was at our church where we would see this female hunting the grounds of the church for unsuspecting birds and squirrels.
Located on the grounds of Second Baptist Church of Memphis, TN is a Labrynth, a prayer garden as such. Inside of the Labrynth, on the left side, is a bronze red tailed hawk on a cross. It, along with the Labrynth, is dedicated to Spence and Becky Wilson. Their gifts of love and support for not only Second Baptist Church but also for the community which is Memphis, Tennessee and out into the world, is a reminder of their dedication to the one who died on the cross.
I create working decoys that can actually be hunted over. I hand-craft Pintails, Green Wing Teal, Mallards and Canvasbacks. They are made out of White Pine, painted in oil paints, hollowed out, and are self-righting so if you throw them out, they automatically turn up to float.
