Barred Owl and Moon Art Card – Midnight Reflection
This barred owl gazes wistfully at the full moon. Do you see his refection? A gentle reminder that you’re never truly alone. This 5.25″ by 5.25″ square card is nice for winter solstice, imbolc, thinking of you, or everyday just to say hey. You may choose an interior message or can leave the inside blank.
Includes nice, heavy envelope and free shipping.
Barred owl and moon fine art card digitally printed using pigment inks (the best quality) on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. Folded card is 5.25" by 5.25" and comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The primary photograph I used to create the artwork is printed on the back of the card with the photo location. Interior of the card is blank or choose one of the messages listed below, which will be printed in flowing indigo script. The paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.
Interior Message Choices: Blank, "May the promise of returning light sustain you through the longest night", "The nights may be long but the moonlight is magical", "Blessed Solstice", "Happy Solstice!", "Blessed Imbolc", or "Thinking of You".
Postage. Because irregularly shaped mail, like this square barred owl art card, must be canceled by hand, the U.S. Postal Service requires extra postage to deliver them. Special "butterfly stamps" carry the exact right postage to mail your card within the U.S. and can be purchased at your local post office or online. Lots of people tell me they successfully send these square cards with a regular ol' first class forever stamp. Realize that some sorting facilities let them go through, but others will send them right back to you for the additional postage.
Framing. This card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.
About the art. The mandala on this card, titled Midnight Reflections, was created from two photos of Sage, a non-releaseable barred owl, who lives at the Deep Creek Lake State Park (Maryland) Aviary. An additional photo of the moon over a cornfield at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland, was used in creating the background. The stars are all digitally painted.
