"Points of Light" was inspired by the many owls that I see on my property, including one like this.  The canvas was prepared with gold leafing behind the owl to create even more glow. The gold leaf peeks out through the wings which is very subtle in small places; just enough to shimmer.  This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas, with the edges finished, and it is ready to hang.

Getting to Know Pandalana

Before approaching the canvas, Pandalana Williams uses her vivid imagination to picture her subject in her mind's eye. While envisioning what she wants to paint, she imagines herself seeing it from all angles or playing it in her head like a movie. She especially enjoys painting from life, either from a still life she sets up or from plein air painting. It is not just an object to me, or just a place, but something that has created an emotion, she explains. When she paints, she enjoys listening to chamber or classical music. Normally, she spends about four hours a day in the studio but also enjoys taking walks in the woods with binoculars in tow.
