Barred owls fly silently in deep forests throughout most of the United States. They are one of the few owls with brown eyes.
When I painted this piece I was remembering the forests of New Hampshire and the cool, misty mornings in summer.
I adore nature, especially in U.S. National Parks. They hold my happiest memories, toughest physical exertions, and the greatest inspiration for my artwork. My watercolors don’t contain symbolism, harbor deep meanings or make personal statements. Sometimes faces appear when I paint, so I let them stay. Otherwise, my artwork is simply a reflection and celebration of what is going on in my imagination at that particular time. My favorite pieces are the ones that I’ve let God paint. I look at them and know that while my hand controls the brush, I am not in control of my hand. The Master Artist is.
