Vali, Miro and a White Owl

Vali, Miro and The White Owl

This is my latest in a series of paintings featuring the great artist Vali Myers.

This new painting on paper is another work based on a famous artwork this time by my great friend and life influence, Vali Myers.  The painting honored is her wonderful and powerful depiction of Moby Dick as it hovers above the reclining figure of the artist.

I have substituted the whale for an owl and her favorite pet Foxy, has been changed to my first and most beloved cat, Miro.

The piece features inks and acrylic paint in the classic Aboriginal dotting style to reinforce the connection to this great Australian.
