I just completed two new arctic wildlife themed watercolors: Snowy Owl, and Arctic Fox. The owl will be a gift for a friend of mine, Teresa James, that runs White Wings Press. She was kind enough to let me use her beautiful etching studio now located in Chicago's great Logan Square neighborhood. I used the shop to edition the Morris's Nest etching a couple of weeks ago. I have a deep love and fascination with polar ecosystems, and polar exploration. From a purely aesthetic perspective, I find a lot of pleasure in the color of the tundra: moss greens, silvery lichen, cool grey blues. I plan on making an archival digital print edition of them both, and will post when those become available. Happy Monday at you.
