This particular Barn Owl, Sebastian, was such a great model when I was photographing him for this painting – he had such personality and was so curious about his surroundings.

Spotted

$1750 Sold

Acrylic

9×12

The reference photos for this Spotted Owl painting were sent to me by my dear friend and “second daughter”, Kali, who spent one summer camping in the desert in a tiny trailer studying and banding spotted owls. I was so excited to get the photos and couldn’t wait to paint one of these beautiful and illusive owls in their natural habitat.

Little Screech Owl

$1500

Scratchboard and Acrylic

10 x 8

Owls have always been a favorite subject of mine to paint, and someday I hope to paint them all. The little screech owl is a particular favorite, not only because it is small & cute but, that they can be either red or grey in color. For me, it was always the folklore, legends and myths that surround these magnificent predators that has fascinated me since childhood when I would read about the Greek Goddess of wisdom, Athena, and the little owl that accompanied her. Throughout history, owls have been depicted as guardians of the souls, harbingers of death, as ghosts and as familiars of witches & sorcerers, as well as, of goddesses such as Athena.
