The owl looked me right in the eyes and said don't give up
One day a friend of mine walked into her backyard in Queensland and there was this determined owl, comfortably settled in her tree, looking back at her. She was having a hard time and that owl looked her right in the eyes and seemed to say "Don't give up". Admittedly I don't know if this is what he actually said to her (or even if he is actually a "he") but it is definitely what he said to me!
The original artwork was a mixed media piece that started off life with a hot pink and bright orange background and grew from there. A little bit of the brightness peeks through, but this owl made it clear to me that he wasn't keen about sitting against a pink background. Who was I to question him? You can read the full story behind this artwork on my blog here.
