There is no other subject that suits me as well as wild life, the textures of the fur and plumage of mammals and birds are so attractive to me. The large variety of forms in the natural world, combined with the many different habitats in which animals live, always inspires new ideas for my paintings. The Barred Owl gets its name from the bar-looking marks on their feathers. This symbol of protection makes these beautiful birds unite with their homes. It took me a few destroyed artworks to get this one exactly how I imagined it: that’s the magic of painting with watercolour, it’s almost impossible to fix anything.
