Just love owls - what is it about them that draws us so? The wisdom of ages? that the people's of our past saw owls as prophetic and guardians? or is it their cuteness as owlets, their beautiful calls and gorgeous plumage? they are a bird of prey, but thought to be a lowly one, not worthy of the lineage of falcons or hawks or especially eagles.
Sadly, we see many owls caught in barbed wire, and I am an avid supporter of eradicating this torment to our Australian wildlife.
This is a work in progress, and I am trusting that this owl is actually headed for a safer perch than the barbed wire fence featured in the work.
This is big, a half sheet of Arches 300gsm, and about half finished, it won't be completed until later in the year when I return from Europe......What shall we call it?
Please drop me a line with any suggestions...would love to hear from you.
Thanks and all the very best, hope you had a great Easter.
Many amazing things have occurred to me during my life, but the most amazing is the gift of being able to call myself an 'artist'.
