Owl paintings are a subject I haven’t done a series of as much as I just keep returning to. I might do a series of paintings or maybe three, and then it’s time to do another owl glass painting. Finding myself intrigued by owls, I am not obsessed with them. They are so much easier to hear than to see, and in the area where I live, they can be heard on any given day, but seldom seen.
Though I have written about avian art, the raptors are special for me. Think of the exacting skill, the awareness of body and muscle it requires just to stay alive, let alone to provide for a nest full of owlets. Though the abilities are innate, survival would still be a chore. I believe they are not merely survivors, but warriors.
There are people who specialize in collecting owls of all kinds, for example, ceramic, bisque, wooden and stuffed owls. Some that actually look real, and some, well, not so much.
My glass painting encompasses a wide variety of subjects including but not limited to horses, flowers, seasonal paintings, pet portraits as well as the owl paintings, so please consider taking a look at things that might interest you too.
