About the Paper. I print on Red River Paper’s acid-free 60-lb Polar Matte paper. This heavy, ultra-smooth, bright white paper produces prints with bold color, smooth tones, and outstanding contrast. The non-reflective surface of Polar Matte preserves and enhances all the fine details of my work.
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 Dreams of the Hunt, was created from a photo of Phoenix, the great horned owl at Deep Creek Lake State Park Aviary in western Maryland. This artwork suggests an eye that incorporates eight blind owls with an image of Phoenix’s good eye at center. The constellation Orion the Hunter glows in the blind owl’s “mind’s eye”.
Phoenix, like his fiery namesake, rose from the ashes of his old life to be reborn an ambassador at the aviary. He was found with a badly broken wing, a damaged beak, and a swollen eye. After losing the sight in his eye, Phoenix was no longer able to hunt and was deemed non-releasable. The great horned is the heaviest owl in North America and hunts small to medium sized mammals, birds, and reptiles out and about in forest or field at night. It’s at night, too, that you’ll hear the great horned owl’s distinctive deep hoots.
