Twilight Grace - art nouveau forest sunset with white owl

Gill Bustamante

Twilight Grace is a 40x40x1,5 inches large original oil painting of an art nouveau style landscape with a white owl. The landscape shows a winter forest scene with a white lake at the bottom and a white owl swooping down from the trees. She is the silent herald of twilight. I painted this in January when purple, yellow, orange and pink are often seen in the evenings as the sun is setting through the naked trees. I was trying to capture the exact moment when the last beam of sun falls through a forest which acts as a signal for owls to start hunting. I painted the barn owl very carefully as I wanted her to look pristine against the slightly odd background of winter trees and white veils that I used to try and show the transition between the day and the night. Painting on deep edge canvas with white edges, ready to hang on wall, no frame necessary.
