Northern Saw-whet Owl – Pastel

Northern Saw-whet Owl pastel copyrightThis soft pastel painting was inspired by a lovely wilderness-filled summer that was haunted by the calls of a pair of these tiny “cat-faced” owls whose eyes seem to be the biggest part of their bodies.  Saw-whet owls are found throughout the United States and southern Canada but this little guy will feel right at home just about anywhere you want to hang him.  As a lover of birds in general, I have an especially soft spot for owls. This large 9×12 pastel painting fits into an 11×14 frame, but if you opt for a larger frame with plenty of matting this work of art will be the focal point of any room.  This original one-of-a-kind work of art can be yours for only $225.00 plus S&H. Does not include S&H or matting & framing.

The Sacred Circle of Water Cow Skull

Sacred Circle of Water by Jill Henderson (2)
