A few years ago Alex, a teenager at the time, signed up for a month of art classes with me. She has signed up for classes every month since then and now, at 22, she is one of my most gifted friends and students. She recently lost her grandfather, Mort. Shortly after Mort passed away, Alex's grandmother gave Alex one of his sketchbooks. Inside the sketchbook Alex discovered all manner of drawings, studies and notes from her grandfather.
She found a series of pencil sketches her grandfather made of owls. And she decided to copy them in ink, and add watercolor to them. This collection of owl paintings is turning into a gorgeous loving collaboration between Alex and her grandfather, Mort.
Love your work Alex and love your concept for this awesome tribute.
