Take a good look - you won't ever be seeing this owl again!
Introducing my latest Arizona Burrowing Owl painting, destined for a new piece of Desert Trash art. I wanted to give you a chance to see this one before I cover him up with trash. (LOL - only small bits of him will be visible in the final creation).
So why did I paint his whole body only to cover it up?
I had a very philosophical Dad (that I miss discussing the obscure and hidden things of life with). It's his influence that stirs up curiosity in me, and in my art. I love knowing the science behind living things. I enjoy exploring the structural aspect, on a scientific level. These are beautiful hidden things to me.
So I'm giving a wholeness to this owl even though he's not meant to be seen. It's a lot like how we are. There's a lot to us that's not shown publicly, but is an important part of who we are. It's good to acknowledge, on a regular basis, the structure or core of what makes our life important and remember it for our own wholeness, even though it might not be readily seen by others.
Hi! I'm Becca Farmer and I'm a fine art painter.
My distinctive artistic voice comes from a deep respect for nature and a keen curiosity for the scientific mechanics of life.
My passion is creating dramatic visual experiences of color, contrast and depth.
