I'm Still Here
This is a colourful and realistic, highly detailed painting of sprigs of Mimosa in an old blue vase. It brings the warmth of the south of France into the home. It is painted on a standard depth stretched canvas and is set in a contemporary white tray frame measuring 48cm x 48 cm x 35 mm overall.
Great Horned Owl
A great horned owl peers from amongst the white oak foliage - perhaps getting ready to settle down to rest after a night's hunting. My thanks to Jennie Norris for the reference photograph of the owl. Widely distributed in the Americas, the Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) is also known as the tiger owl or hoot owl. It is the second heaviest owl in North America, after the snowy owl, and its well-camouflaged plumage varies considerably across its range. The large, powerful talons are capable of exerting 300 pounds of pressure per square inch. Those tufts of feathers that give rise to the species' name are thought to be used to give visual cues when interacting with other owls. This original pencil drawing by Elaine Jones was made with Faber Castell Polychromos, Caran d'Ache Pablo and Luminance pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat paper. Image measures approximately 37cm x 29cm, unframed.
SUNFLOWERS IN BLUE VASE
This is a very detailed and realistic painting of sunflowers - a taste of the warmth of the south of France in the home. Meticulously painted to make the viewer feel almost able to reach out and touch the petals and leaves. It is set in a light coloured contemporary tray frame measuring 68cm x 68cm x 35mm overall.
