Barred Owl and Moon Fine Art Print – Midnight Reflections

$49.00

Barred owl and moon mandala fine art print is 12″ by 12″ on cotton rag, acid-free paper using pigment inks. Created using two photos of Sage, the resident barred owl at the Deep Creek Lake State Park Aviary near McHenry, Maryland, and a photo of the moon over a cornfield taken at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland. This piece is wistful, but is also meant to carry the energy of connection and support.

About the Paper. I print on Red River Paper’s Aurora Art Natural 250, an acid-free, 100% cotton paper made in the U.S. This paper has a distinctive elegance and warmth, with a natural white tone and semi-smooth surface. Aurora Art Natural 250 contains no optical brighteners.

About the Inks. I use pigment inks, which resist fading. If you frame your print using UV acylic or glass and hang it away from bright light, the chances of it fading before fifty years have elapsed is very low. Your print will stay vibrant throughout your lifetime and beyond.

About the artwork.This digital collage, titled Midnight Reflections, was created using two photos of Sage, the resident barred owl at the Deep Creek Lake State Park Aviary in western Maryland. The photo of the moon was taken at Antietam National Battlefield. If you look carefully, you’ll see the second image of Sage peering down from that moon.

Although many people consider owls harbingers of death, they’re just as often portrayed as wise mentors or sages. With his soulful dark eyes, Sage the barred owl looks every bit the wise mentor, thus his name. Barred owls are often heard in the woods at night. Their “who cooks for you?” hoots are distinctive and tend to be recurrent, as barred owls are year-round residents who stick tightly to their home ranges. Damage to Sage’s right wing makes him non-releasable, limiting his home range to the confines of the aviary.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
