Don’t Let Me Fade Away (Barn Owl)

This is a new painting with a message on the environment and the status of the barn owl in Ontario. Canada. So many animals are becoming endangered throughout the world. Do we want to see them fade away?

This video zooms in to show close-up details of the techniques used with acrylic mediums and paper. The paper & the cracks in the bark (that are encroaching on the owl) represent the fragility of habitat & species. The barn owl’s talons grip the branch that is in danger of breaking off from the tree. And the snow accumulates to hide this from our view, while in reality, much of what we take for granted is disappearing.


Below is only a sampling of completed works, inspired by the beauty of Muskoka in Central Ontario, Canada. Please visit my Portfolio page for more of my art in various styles and subjects, using traditional and innovative techniques.

To view the paintings in person, visit the Vine Art Gallery of Muskoka by appointment, or when the ARTrail Purple Banner is flying out front.
