'Cherry Blossom Owls'

Title: 'Cherry Blossom Owls'
Size: 1m x 80cm
Date: 21 July 2010

83 hand cut and individually painted & glued cherry blossoms and two snug owls - a 'mamma' and her little baby, are leaving my studio this Friday. Before the painting makes its way into the nursery of this lovely Client's soon-to-be-born daughter, it is to be framed & glassed.

Needless to say, a lot of work went into this painting and I am so eager to hand it over. It was a pleasure to complete this order & I can't wait to see it hanging above the cot in its lovely harbour-side nursery in Sydney.

Oh my goodness, these are amazing! So cute!!! Can't wait till we have some space (and a more permanent place to stay) to start making our nursery. It's hard to have all this nesting energy and no space/place to apply it! Not that I would make anything as beautiful as these adorable little owls!

I'm really fond of your painting style, and since I love owls too, I think that this picture is just about perfect :-)

Love them!!! Loving your blog too!

Charlotta Ward said...

Thank you everyone for your kind and sweet comment!

Owls are close to my heart - it's a Swedish thing! :)

So glad you liked these two. They are sitting snugly in a beautiful vintage inspired silver frame in a nursery here in Australia.
I hope to be able to share pictures of the final room in the near future.

Dear Charlotta
I've sent you an email, but I forgot one thing: I must tell you about Liselotte in Denmark, which is also illustrator. Her work reminds much about your work, you are both really talented!
You will find her work here:

This is so cute! Our complex has playground equipment in a central park area, but I forget how much just being out in nature inspires kids to play! Thanks for the great ideas - the blossoms are great!
