Snowy owl (10 by 12" mixed media on paper) In Private Collection
I saw this Snowy owl just south east of Wainwright, AB on a hunting trip in October 2008. I was on my way back to Vermilion where I was attending my first year of college at the time when I had spotted it about 100 yards off the road just standing out in the open in a pasture. I started walking up to it snapping pictures with my camera every few steps. I was able to get within 15 yards of this owl. I thought it was injured and may have a broken wing when I was this close to it. As soon as that thought crossed my mind the owl proved me wrong when it flew off. I decided to draw this owl using pencil, ink pen, and coloured pencil. I created the piece on plain white drawing paper which I stained myself one evening after school.
