Tony ArnoldImagine having at your fingertips a whole gallery of Harry's works, smaller than the originals of course, but covering far more wildlife subjects than most of us waterfowl addicts ever imagined of him. Imagine being able to seek out at your leisure the tiny details that make Harry's art such a joy to examine with care: the hidden Eurasian pigeon mixed in with a flight of ours, the sneaky spoonie (usually pictured flying or swimming in the opposite direction from the painting's majestic sprig or mallard subjects), the modest coot casting his own critical eye over incoming waterfowl. Then turn to the Rocky Mountain sheep, the tropical birds, or even the one plate whose live subjects are just a pair of sleepy horses. And finally, from Diane's exhaustive research, learn about the man himself and how he became probably the foremost waterfowl artist in this country and perhaps in the world today.. . . I predict that first editions of this book will sell out and become collector's items before the ink has had time to dry. Its appearance just ahead of the year-end holidays makes it an ideal gift for any waterfowler.
