Sunia Settles in for the Night
17" x 11" x 14"
I am getting ready for SOFA Santa Fe, the art fair that opens on August 3rd at the Santa Fe Convention Center. This large owl is sitting on a fungus which I collected in Sitka, Alaska. Up there they call it Bear's Breath. It makes a great perch for this fellow.
Just about all of this piece is made from parts of tires, inner tubes and strips of old mountain bike tires. His tail feathers are cut from an old croquette set.
