There is nothing quite like nesting season in the boreal forests of North America and Northern Europe. It regularly happens that, when in the right location at the right time, you see fledglings sunbathing on a branch while their parents are out looking for food on the taiga. The evergreen forests have an amazing lush atmosphere in spring and summer, and a trip is worthwhile to witness scenes like the one portayed on the painting.
The proceeds of this artwork will go to the Owl Research Institute in Montana (US), a non-profit research organisation with over 30 years of experience with owl species like the Great Grey Owl. They heavily focus on qualitative data collection and monitoring owls to better understand long term population trends. A very useful asset in the endeavor to educate people and protect pristine forests and biodiversity.
