Osprey Watercolor Painting is 11 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper. Recently an article in our local newspaper Providence Journal, ran a story about a nest two osprey had built in a dangerous area that the electric company was moving to a better location for when they return in the spring.

Henry David Thoreau
