Art and Beauty Tuesday--Jeff Ward

Today's painting is Eagle-Owl by Jeff Ward.  I love the painterly style of this piece.  You can see the brush strokes, like feathers, all over this owl.  It's so fluffy, you just want to reach out and touch him.

The whole picture is done in shades of brown, black and white, the background almost an extension of the owl itself.  The feathers seem to be blowing in the cold wind; the owl is fluffing himself up against the cold.

The background does seem to be an extension of the owl. Nice picture.

The owl looks so adorable.

The eyes are awesome. They look real.

I admit to being distracted by the feathers, but, you're right!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
