Artist's description:

I am currently exploring British wildlife and it's role in shaping our mythology. Throughout history, and across the world, few animals or birds have featured in so many different stories, beliefs, folklores and superstitions as the owl.

The link between the owl and it's literary importance is symbolised by my use of an antique book cover as my painting ground. The cover is over a hundred years old with beautiful tatty corners and areas of wear and tear. The owl itself is painted in acrylics and I have initialled the front and signed the back.

The painting is unframed, it will be presented in a clear cellophane bag, supported by a backing board and I will of course wrap it and protect it during transit but please handle it carefully as the book cover is fragile and will need to be professionally framed. Please get in contact if you have any questions about this painting or any of my others.
