Silent Swan

FIRST PLACE AND PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD WINNER AT THE BUCKHORN FINE ART WILDLIFE FESTIVAL 2010.

Sometimes simpler is better.  "Silent Swan" is symbolic of a simpler time, a simpler life and slowing down to smell the roses.  What is simpler than a white bird on a dark background?  The setting sun filters through the swan's feathers creating a comforting glow while at the same time producing a raw dramatic edge.  It is unsophisticated yet breathtaking all at once.  We stop, we look and we enjoy.

A muted swan is a beautifully simplistic bird: regal in stature, silent in voice and graceful in life.  Her life is a life to be envied and if we are lucky enough to emulate.

Image size - 11" x 14"   Image ships unframed.

A limited edition of 40 signed and numbered giclee prints on canvas will be available.  

The giclee printing process uses high quality scanned digital images of the original fine art piece, archival inks and acid-free paper or canvas.  Through the use of digital technology and certified giclee fine art printers, colours are matched exactly to those of the original.  The prints produced are identical images of the original that possess fade proof qualities.  

All prints will be signed and numbered by the artist and include a certificate of authenticity.



Artist's Biography -

Peter Ferin's intial training in fine arts from Sheridan College and the Humber College Design Program set the foundation for his life-long passion for art.  The works of wildlife artists such as Carl Brenders, Jett Brunette and Pat Godin inspired Peter to improve his skills and to reach higher standards of artistic achievement.

As an accomplished wildife sculptor and intent on receiving honest critiques of his work, Peter challenged himself by entering a number of wildlife art competitions.  He has received numerous awards from established art exhitits and juried shows including the Ward World Wildlife Art Competition in Maryland, the Wye Marsh Canadian Wildlife Art Competition in Midland, Ontario, the North American Wildife Art Competition in Michigan, the Canadian Open Wildfowl Art Competion in Toronto, Ontario and the Kaleidoscope Art Exhibit in Burlington, Ontario, just to name a few.

While still sculpting, Peter has spent the last several years turning his talents to painting and drawing.  His subject matter focuses on nature, wildlife and his life-long love of sporting dogs.  The painting technique recreates a textured effect by layering thin washes of acrylic and guache paints, reproducing a quality of work that suggests the look and texture of living subjects.  The paintings are luminous and lifelike in the style of photo realism.

In 2009 Peter entered the prestigious Buckhorn Wildlife Art Festival with his painting "Hoodies" and received an Honorable Mention in a very highly competitive class.  In 2010 Peter entered the competition yet again and won First Place as well as the coveted "People's Choice Award" with "Silent Swan"

He continues to work on his painting and drawing techiques and is currently researching his next piece.  Peter makes his home in Flamborough, Ontario.
