My owl paintings.

Owls are mostly night active solitary animals. There are about 200 different species of these beautiful birds! In different cultures and over different periods of human history the symbolism of these birds varied a lot. Ancient Greeks associated owls with Athena, goddess of wisdom and knowledge. In medieval Europe these birds were hunted because people thought of them to be evil. They were supposed to be messengers of death and companions of witches…

Personally I love owls and I have done several  acrylic paintings of them.

These three paintings were done immediately after I finished school. Finally I had no art projects and could paint anything I liked any time I wanted to!

This triptych was left at my parent’s house when I moved to Germany. In fact, it is still decorating our living room. About one year ago I realized, that I want to have an owl painting in my new house as well, so I painted this eagle owl. 🙂
