"My paintings consist of many layers that are applied over several weeks in chaotic bursts of energy. People often see things in my work, and I enjoy hearing their interpretations. I am always focused on the design fundamentals within the work, but sometimes towards the end I might do a little tweaking. This specific painting reminded me of the incredible branding from the Red Owl grocery store which originated here in Minnesota and was bought out by Supervalu a long time ago. Maybe you saw the store in season 3 of Fargo? The black eye that you see on the left side was already there. I did embellish the outer edge of the form to get that sense of two owl ears along the top while I did my final layer of white. I had decided to title the piece 'Red Owl' before I made that last layer." - Shawn McNulty
