Owl Be Seeing Ya'

Artist: Matson, ca. 1960's Acrylic on Board (16"X20") Joined BAMOO Collection 1-2000

Trailerism School of Art

Conjoined owls cower hypnotically in the midst of an explosion of Halloween surrealism.

Matson's use of the color orange is so subtle yet needful that it literally sucks the rational thoughts out of one's head compelling one to take it home and hang it on the wall without really knowing why.

  1. i feel like this is mass produced bad art. it has a store bought look, at least from here. that makes me laugh since that would mean that there are lots of these out there, HA HA HA!

  2. Everyone is a critic. And we love that!

  3. you better believe everyone's a critic....why do you think they invented the internet?

  4. i found this painting in a barn that hasn't been touched in over two decades... who is Matson, and what is this thing worth????

    email me at

    is anyone interested in it????

  5. I sure would like to find out more about which Matson this is? I have an extremely large owl painting by Matson. It's probably 5'x 5'. Does anyone know how I can find out about this owl artist??

  6. If anyone knows more about The Matson's owl painting, I really want to know.

  7. Another painting in this series by Matson.
