Wild turkeys at Connequot State Park on Long Island were the models for 'Gobblers'. Coheleach enjoys working large, and like so many of his big paintings, this three-by six-foot oil appears quite detailed in reduced form, yet the original is somewhat loose and painterly. "Three horizontal lines - trees in the background, birds in the center, and autumn grass in the foreground - serve as basic design elements. For the composition to work, the turkeys had to be in a line, which is why you see the one on the left cut off, leading the procession across the painting. I love painting turkeys. In fact, someday I would like to do one in real detail, Audubonesque, just the turkey against a white background with every shade on every little feather."
