SILENT DESCENT, 24Ē x 36Ē, 1992
In the stillness of the forest, the great snowy owl silently descends. We catch a glimpse of it before it vanishes in the dense mist. Tundra born, the owl is most accustomed to forest, lakes or towns, yet must find food in its new surroundings. The snowy owl can survive days without food, living off itís fat reserves while hunting. Itís dense feathers shield its body from the devastating cold wind, and itís wings are muffled with soft feathers that make itís fight silent. This painting was released as a limited edition print.
