The barn owl has these dark mysterious eyes that seem bottomless. I try to capture a little bit of their essence when I do the portraits, their bodies are almost weightless, consisting mainly of feathers, yet they are wonderfully strong predators.
I do accept ideas for commissions and would love to talk with you about it. I am lucky enough to paint creatures and locations that inspire me.
If you are interested in a painting, two things are required: patience and the knowledge that it is my vision that you will be receiving, based on information shared between us. If we do come to an agreement, you will receive a one-of-a-kind Stephen Koury treasure.
