I have met the most amazing man. He is awesome in ways I cannot gush enough about but one of the things that I love most about him is his deep love and connection with nature. He has a particular love and affinity for the owl, as do I!
So, tonight as I was contemplating my feelings for this amazing person who has walked into my life, I took time to do a watercolour painting/sketch up of one of the birds he looks after.
Owls are one of my absolute favourite birds and I have been drawing and painting them throughout my arty career. I love how they can convey so much interest and emotion through their eyes.
For me, it is all in the eyes – it says it all if you have the quietude to stop and truly receive their silent message.
Above is an up close of the eyes. I love animal eyes, especially owls… I might have mentioned that already though! 🙂
