Owl Pillow (Arin Waddell)
Premium, 24"x24" pillow. Back is plush black velvet.
My artwork is uses whimsy, allegory and every day objects/birds/subjects to spark conversations and inspire personal inquiry. In the West, it is difficult not to obsess over and make art about our compelling, stunning landscape. However, I have come to painting through a life-long love of learning, and a formal graduate school back door of concepts and metaphors gathered together like little stones from the path of my own history. In these visual stories----inspired from flora, fauna, friends and family---- the personal stretches/reaches out to become universal.

Waddell has teamed up with the brilliant designer/photographer Jenae Neeson of MyBonnie Studios in Sheridan, who exquisitely captures the details and textures of the imagery, as well as the architectural flavor of the collectors who own them.
