Description The Northern Goshawk is a powerful predator of northern and mountain woods. This hawk is the bigger, fiercer, wilder relative of the Sharp-shinned and Coopers Hawks. Its an accipitera type of hawk with short, broad wings and a long rudderlike tail that give it terrific speed and aerial agility.Inside and on the perimeter of coniferous and mixed forests, they hunt grouses, crows, small birds, squirrels, rabbits, snowshoe hares, small rodents, snakes, and insects. With short surges of amazingly fast flight, they attack their prey, often weaving through branches and crashing through thickets. The Northern Goshawk is the most widely distributed Accipiter (hawk) in the world. A denizen of mature forested regions, the species inhabits boreal and temperate forests in North America, Europe, northwestern Africa, continental Asia, and Japan. In North America, goshawks occur in Canada, the northern United States (including much of Alaska), the mountainous western United States, and northwestern Mexico. Northern Goshawks are powerful raptors about the size of Red-tailed Hawks. Set in the Catskill Mountains of New York State, background elements of this image were derived from a 19th-century Hudson River School painting by American artist, Asher B Durand. Goshawk in Pursuit, is a hand-painted digital image and photo composite created in Spadecallers Florida Studio on 3/8/2023.
I.M. Spadecaller, Clearwater Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Welcome to Spadecaller's Galleries.
About the Artist: Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
In the late 1950’s, Spadecaller’s formal training in traditional oil painting techniques commenced. He was eight years old, when he started private painting lessons. Through considerable personal sacrifice, his mother, who has since passed away, nurtured his artistic talents and provided him with many of the tools and circumstances to launch his creative journey. Memories of art exhibitions in New York City that his mother introduced him to continue to motivate his quest for excellence. Spadecaller attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71), and during the 70's up until the late 80's, he exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. As a realist painter, he strives to capture the beauty of nature and the soul of humankind. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, he turned to creating digital hand painted images, mixed media and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that he had once found in oils.
