Tending the Bay, 8/20
Tony Angell’s passion for nature began in childhood, through exploring and studying wildlife and his artistic talent is innate. He developed and strengthened his skills through drawing and sculpting from life, often through study of the wild creatures he has rehabilitated. Angell’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures capture the characteristics and gestures of his subjects, beautifully communicating moments he has witnessed in the wild. Telling the stories of the animals who inspire his work, Angell’s work continues to expand our appreciation of the uniqueness and personalities each living thing exudes.
About Tending The Bay, Angell states: "Along the bays and coves and some rivers of the Pacific Northwest there is usually a kingfisher tirelessly flying back and forth along the shoreline to maintain its territorial borders. Big beaked with crested head and stout body they hover and plunge to snap up a meal from the near surface of the water."
