Prints from Sharon Montrose


If you read blogs with any regularity,you might have already come across these quirky, but delightful animal portraits by Sharon Montrose. Don't you love the spareness of the off-white backdrop and bleached hardwood floors? I certainly do! According to her etsy shop, these creatures live quite happily in a California zoo. Montrose captures each animal's unique personality, from the playfulness of the porcupine to the lordly exasperation of the owl (doesn't he appear to be tapping his claw, as if telling her to take the darn picture, already?). I take such pleasure in coming home and glancing up at my little menagerie hanging from my wall. Oh, the stories they tell....

I love these prints. There's something very candid and lonely about them. They're just lovely.
