All-knowing – two words that immediately come to mind when gazing upon this distinguished bird. Owls – a true symbol of wisdom and clarity of mind, are insightful and have the ability to sense deception. Owls featured in paintings look spectacular, as these birds themselves are very beautiful and regal, with a sense of self-worth. In this wool painting, a majestic owl is perched on a limb and surveying his forest kingdom. I chose a rich, autumn color palette to focus on the deeper hues of the fall season and those of the magnificent bird. Notice how the wool fibers capture the texture of the leaves in the forest, as well as draw attention to the pattern in the owl’s feathers. This handmade wool painting, with its beautiful “Owl in the autumn forest”, will be an outstanding addition to your home’s décor. Bird lovers are sure to welcome this magnificent owl into their home.

I also offer different frames and can switch to the frame of your choice.
You can also buy the wool painting as is, without frame and glass. To keep the painting safe during shipping, a plexiglass cover will be used to protect the fibers. You can then use the frame of your choice to display the image.
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.
Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
