With "Mom and Dad's" encouragement the young Eastern
Bluebird is about to take that first leap into a world of discovery where
he can join his three siblings in the nearby oak tree. Within a few days
the entire family might soar all the way to the top of the Pilot Mountain
knob in the distance.
THE FLEDGLING was technically one of the most difficult of Dempsey 's paintings. The large sweep of grass, each blade of which had to be delineated, shaded and highlighted, along with the leaves on the oak tree and the tree line in the distance, all conspired to keep the artist bent over his easel for literally hundreds of hours.
