Original Art For Sale – Aim for the Moon

I made this painting three years ago and so many people say they love it, but the right person hasn’t come along yet to give it a good home. It took quite a while to make because the wings on many of the birds are strips of wallpaper. All the birds are made with wallpaper but I then painted over areas. The owls are, from top to bottom….Great Horned, Snowy, Barn, Saw-Whet and Burrowing with adolescent. The burrow is made with molding paste and acrylic paint. The size is 18 X 24 gallery wrapped canvas. If you are interested and would like to talk about this painting please contact me.

A wise old owl sat on an oak, the more he saw the less he spoke. The less he spoke, the more he heard. Why can’t we all be like that bird?

This is a collaboration between my son Kevin and myself. He cuts the boards and sands them then I paint and design

My finished painting…Aim for the moon, if you miss, you may hit a star….w. clement stone. I loved the journey of designing this and deciding with each step what direction the painting will go. It was great fun. My goal is to have fun and I did. Thanks for sharing this with me.

Sharing layer one of my owl mixed media painting, just the shapes right now. In front of the moon is a great horned owl, you can just see the shape. Next comes a snow owl, then a barn owl, a sweet little saw whet owl. At the bottom a burrowing owl with the baby in the burrow. Keep checking back for progress, this is really going to be a fun picture to put together! Hope you think it is interesting and as always….thank you for checking in.
