Owl jewelry box

In doing decorative painting, I find it most interesting to treat the piece sculpturally. Here I wrapped a view of owls, moon, and a reaching tree around the box in three dimensions, with a simple palette to emphasize the design. (Compare with my earlier “day-time” version.) Poplar and acrylic paint, 2019.
