This is a portrait of a Snowy Owl. I did this series in 2014. Birds hold a very special place in my heart and I will continue to paint them as long as I am able to paint I think. I have painted the sides of this canvas to offer a frameless option. I have signed and dated the back.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
