Rain Man (Barn Owl Painting) by EsthervanHulsen Rain Man (Barn Owl Painting) by EsthervanHulsen
A barn owl enjoys the soft forest rain. I wanted to give this painting a feel of an Indian totem pole, which gave me strength during a difficult period in my life, where I lost a lot of loved ones. 

Water color and gouache on board
80x50 cm cm

ORIGINAL SOLD.

Took me a few moments to realize it's not a photo. Great job! It's so encouraging to see other realism artists getting paid for it, professional artists I used to know always told me off for realism, told me it wasn't what people wanted, etc. So nice to see that change.

Well, I have to say that it is not easy, what you say is in some way true, but realism is not the most popular art form (if art at all, according to some) at the moment. I have read a lot about the situation in the States and Europe, and talked to professional wildlife artists as well. The situation is not great.
But, that should not deter you from what you really want to do! If you can live with a small income, and love to paint and draw, things should be fine. :)

Yeah, lots of great artists out there getting paid less for the amount of detail they put in. It is something I love though so I'll stick with it. :)
