Perched Owl in Forest, Vintage Naive Oil on Canvas Painting

Regular price $75.00

The colors on this folky painting are rather electric, making it feel a bit like a vision from another world and imparting this owl with something of a surreal feel--or perhaps better to say amplifying it, as owls are already rather miraculous and mystical sorts of creatures!  At the same time, the really gives a sense of the owl's feathers as a form of camouflage, making it feel very much as one with the swirl of nature all around it. If I had young children around, I might host story hour with this hanging overhead!

16 x 12 1/4”, oil on canvas. Unsigned and undated, later 20th century I believe.
