Fowl with Pearls, I have been looking for the perfect theme for my powder room. I thought I wanted to go with the norm and make it a little more formal, but that's really not my style. So I happened upon this and new this was it!! I like a rustic, casual look, that's when I thought "a quail (I think).... That can be my rustic, Wearing pearls...that's my formal!". Why not?
Michael Sowa (German, 1945) is a phenomenal painter. His style is something close to Flemish-master-meets-surrealist-animal-lover, in the same vein as painter Rene Magritte. Just my cup of tea. I still can't believe Sowa hasn't had more recognition from the "serious" art world, although that world is a game unto itself.
