Limited Edition of 200, 24″ x 16″ – $150.00
Open Edition 10″ x 8″ – $30.00
The few black bars on the almost pure white plumage of the male, and its habit of perching on fence posts in exposed areas, make it easy to spot. The female is not as white as the male yet her barred and patched plumage makes her less conspicuous while nesting on the ground as snow recedes in early spring.
In the composition, “Snowy Outpost”, a male, Snowy Owl turns its head and stares from time to time. Like a chip from an arctic glacier, he looks placidly at the surroundings silently blanketed with snow. Frozen with anticipation, he awaits the vast expanse for a sound to be heard or some motion to be made.
