Description The snowy owl is a large, powerful owl of the high Arctic tundra, with regal white feathers and brown markings suited for camouflage during northern winters. During the winter, the snowy owl irregularly shows up in windswept fields and dunes. It is the largest of all North American owls. During the summer it is often nomadic, nesting and inhabiting areas where there are large populations of the small rodents called lemmings. Remote North American breeding areas are safe from the effects of human disturbance, though the effects of climate change are beginning to affect their habitat. Snowy owl populations have declined in parts of the breeding range in northern Europe.When their favorite food source, the lemming, is scarce, it takes a wide variety of prey, including birds as big as geese. During some winters, large numbers of Snowy Owls appear south of the Canadian border. Their appearance in towns and cities invariably attract many observers, photographers, and media attention. Snowy Owl On A Winter Night is a Spadecaller digital painting and photo composite.
I.M. Spadecaller, Clearwater Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Welcome to Spadecaller's Galleries.
About the Artist: Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
In the late 1950’s, Spadecaller’s formal training in traditional oil painting techniques commenced. He was eight years old, when he started private painting lessons. Through considerable personal sacrifice, his mother, who has since passed away, nurtured his artistic talents and provided him with many of the tools and circumstances to launch his creative journey. Memories of art exhibitions in New York City that his mother introduced him to continue to motivate his quest for excellence. Spadecaller attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71), and during the 70's up until the late 80's, he exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. As a realist painter, he strives to capture the beauty of nature and the soul of humankind. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, he turned to creating digital hand painted images, mixed media and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that he had once found in oils.
