Folk Art Owl Acrylic Paintings

This white owl is one of four new Folk Art Owl Paintings, each one a miniature. Created in acrylic and mixed media, the paintings are ACEO* sized.

Behind this little owl's white feathers are shades of yellow, pink and turquoise.
This owlet, a baby owl, has feathers of pink underlying splashes of turquoise, lime green and orange.
And in this painting the owl has green eyes and feathers in Autumn shades. Each owl has an imaginary origin and a folk art sensibility.

*ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) or ATC (Artist Trading Cards) are miniature works of art, 2.5 X 3.5 inches (6.4cm X 8.9cm), any subject matter, any medium, the only rule is size.
