|Tyto Alba (Barn Owl) 11x4 Watercolor|
I've mentioned my family history with birds before, so whether they're trendy or not, I'll always love birds because of my grandfather. I especially love this particular owl. If you've never watched them in motion, check out the crazy head-swivel action & downy lightness of their feathers in this video. I think they are remarkable birds; beautiful, with their heart-shaped face, eerie in a prehistoric way, and cute, all at the same time.

A woman artist is not deprived by cooking and having children, nor by nursing children with measles (even in triplicate) - one is in fact nourished by this rich life, provided one always does some work each day; even a single half hour, so that the images grow in one's mind.
I detest a day of no work, no music, no poetry.
Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975)
