Siblings

11" x 30" acrylic/gouache on watercolour paper.
If you ever have the opportunity to look closely at an owl feather you will observe an incredible flannel-like textured surface and frayed edges, designed for silent flight. This Burrowing Owl feather gave me a wonderful opportunity to share a comical moment in the family life of this ground dwelling owl.

In this painting I was able to combine the details of an owl feather with an observant parent watching over three siblings, locked in a staring match, as they emerge from their underground nest.
