Barn Owls Boxed Notecards

$16.95

The barn owl (Tyto alba) is one of the most widely distributed of all birds, taking top honors in that distinction among owls. Now acknowledged for its role as a predator of rodents, up until the late 20th century this large-winged, long-legged owl was maligned as a portent of evil or death, hunted even by the farmers who reaped the benefits of the barn owl’s prowess. Silent in flight, with a telltale screech serving for a “hoot,” the barn owl has a heart-shaped face that may have helped endear it to present-day humans. Artist Jeannine Chappell combines her talents for creating images on paper with the options provided by editing her artwork via computer. Such a merger engenders qualities of collage into her unique works of art, and serves to portray her barn owl subject with boldness as well as delicacy.

Jeannine Chappell

American artist Jeannine Chappell is utterly captivated by owls, and she has devoted a great deal of creative energy to depicting them. She spent hours and hours observing owls in the care of local rescue organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lived for many decades before deciding to nest on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. In addition to her favorite birds, Chappell portrays other wildlife, landscapes, and natural wonders in collage-like works that are begun on paper and later digitally enhanced. “This technique allows me the best of two worlds,” she says, “the spontaneity of watercolor, pencil, and crayon on paper and the editing capabilities of the computer.” Her art conveys the unique character of each species and setting, bringing viewers closer to nature.
