A barn owl perches under an embellished archway, white face vividly standing out ghost-like against deep greens and obsidian, encircled with a thin gold halo. The owl clutches a leafy vine with detailed, sharp talons. This piece is rendered in an array of rich neutral tones, layered carefully to create naturalistic feathers.
This highly detailed piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which investigate the concept of veneration and encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.
