Northern Saw-whet Owl – Pastel

Northern Saw-whet Owl pastel copyrightInspired by a lovely wilderness-filled summer haunted by the calls of a pair of these tiny “cat-faced” owls, whose eyes seem to be the biggest part of their bodies.  Found throughout the United States and southern Canada, this little Saw-whet owl will feel at home just about anywhere.  As a lover of birds with a special soft spot for owls, I was more than surprised when this soft but vibrantly-colored pastel practically jumped off the paper at me.  This large 9×12 pastel painting fits into a 11×14 frame, but opt for a larger one with plenty of matting and it will become the focal point of an entire wall.   $225.00

Does not include S&H or matting & framing.



Songbird Quartet

These four original detailed soft pastel portraits of native songbirds (Cedar Waxwing, Cassin’s Kingbird, Barn Swallow, and Hooded Oriole) are matted and signed by me. Visually stunning when hung together.  Dimensions: 9×12.
$150.00 each or $550.00 for all four original paintings! Shipping not included.

The Sacred Circle of Water Cow Skull

Sacred Circle of Water by Jill Henderson (2)
