Snowy Owl by the Rock
(scroll down for description)
lithograph, 9” x 12”, 1994

The snowy owl is the most famous bird of the Far North, and it is my favourite. Since my boyhood birding days, I have seen snowy owls during their winter sojourn in southern Canada. The sighting of each snowy owl was so special that I can remember almost every one. This original hand coloured print depicts a female of the species. She has stronger black markings which, of course, give her better camouflage when she sits on her tundra nest.
