Gail Ratliffe: The Owl Gourds

The Owl Gourds

I like gourds. I like people who like gourds. And I love artists who use gourds as backdrops for some of the most creative artwork I’ve ever seen. Gail Cullen Ratliffe is such an artist and I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do. She finds inspiration in nature (as you’ve seen in her previous bio), and here are two of my personal favorites, the Snowy Owl and the Northern Pygmy Owl. These were done in water color, colored pencil and acrylic paint. I’m named them the Owl Gourds.
