Owls #193 & #194, 2013
India ink on paper. 24″ x 18″
Often, my owls got a little goofy. I find the “chatter” of all the different marks and spots in these two pictures especially appealing – and amusing. It lends a vibrancy to these birds that is at the same time comical, as if they are in clown costumes or something. I remember wondering if I should paint their beaks red!
Actually, they really don’t look that much like owls, do they? Well okay, when you’re slamming ink down, it goes as it goes!
You can see many more owls in the DRAWINGS and ARCHIVE sections of this website! Also, if you click READ FULL ARTICLE below, you can make this one bigger.
