This artwork is of a large great grey owl that had become injured and was now being cared for at a local Vermont science and rehabilitation center. It had lost its eye in a car accident and so, also lost its ability to hunt effectively and care for itself. It had gained the ability to educate the public on its own remarkable abilities and beauty. I painted the original piece plein air, with the beautiful raptor watching me the entire time. This artwork would be perfect in the hands of a hiker or a bird, wildlife or nature lover.
Open edition archival prints are on bamboo paper, either with or without a mat and frame. The 8" x 10" unframed prints come with an archival backer included and ship flat.
8" x 10" framed prints are matted with an archival off-white mat and backer, under glass, and live edge frame is completely ready to hang. Mat and frame adds approximately 4” to each side; For example, an 8" x 10" print that is framed has final dimensions of approximately 16” x 18”. Frame dimensions are approximate due to the variability of widths in the live edge wood; No two frames are alike. Note: photo of framed print shows a different example print but is to show the handcrafted mat and frame style.
Inside of cards are left blank, ready for your personalization. Card measures approximately 5 1/4" x 4" and is printed on recycled white cardstock. A recycled white envelope is included with each card.
