Icon VI: The Owl by Lynnette Shelley

Currently unavailable for purchase


This is the sixth artwork in a series of animal ICONs I am working on, and will probably be the last, at least for a little while. (I have ideas for a new series that I am eager to start on).

Mixed media on textured blue (Strathmore) watercolor paper.

Special thanks to Donna Ridgeway for letting me look at her great horned owl pictures.

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.
