Spirits of Day and Night Flight by ssantara Spirits of Day and Night Flight by ssantara
Painted drum head done in acrylic on a 16 inch stretched deer skin hoop drum. I painted this as a commission back in 2003 and had scanned it in parts to be assembled later... which never happened till now...

I made a small print of the center image because I liked the effect I got with that single scan. Thus also adding to not assembling the whole thing for years...

So now I have it as a new t-shirt design and a print available on my web site: [link]

Really beautiful! :love: I love the intensity of their eyes, they lure you in... The snow owl has been a guide of mine for a long time now. Very recently I got the opportunity to fly with the hawk which appeared by my side. So it was quite the pleasant surprise to find them here, linked together :aww: (at least, I'm assuming it's a hawk... :XD:) Wonderful drum, the person who commissioned this is very lucky indeed.

The symmetry and counterbalance are beautiful. I love all of the subtle color and pattern. I also suspect that this is going to get a lot of mileage as a t-shirt design. I'll be watching for it at the summer/autumn cons. :D

hehe I'm sorry, as a wildlife major I find this a tiny bit humorous because snowy owls are diurnal. But truly the art work is fantastic! So much detail. You've done a stunning job there.

I see a lot of artists that I love doing amazing paintings on drum heads. Are these drums actually used? I would hate to be wailing away on a piece of artwork. Is there a special sealent that you put on it to give the image staying power if they are being used?
