My Latest Whimsical Animal, "Blue Al"
This was a little time in coming, but I finally finished another oil painting, 30" x 40" "Blue Al." This larger-than-lifesize hoot owl was photographed by friend Susan Boswell on her way to work in Davidson County.
The background was inspired by tree branches and a morning sky, creating a tapestry or stained glass effect. It uses four distinct shades of blue, with "branches" intersecting. The owl itself is stylized with simplified shapes and striking blue eyes.
The original is available for sale, and is scheduled to be on exhibit at the "From Father to Son" show at the Circa Gallery in Asheboro, NC in June, unless it sells first. Contact the artist directly until then for more information about owning the painting.
Prints and cards will be available.
As a whimsical artist, I'm excited to offer another creation to my line of whimsical animals.
