Owl art: Eastern Screech owl story
About six years on a new moon winter night, we went outside and laid ourselves in a big red blanket; when suddenly the shooting speed of flapping wings across the sky disrupted the peace of our star gazing meditation.
Rushing to rise from the ground intrigued of what had passed over our heads; And there he was, compact and magnificent looking at us with petrified eyes as we walked towards him.
With a slow steady pace I approached him with the camera, gaining his confidence with each step, just to take a snap picture of this majestic fearless hunter of the night. He stood there like he was the king, he was barely bigger than a pint glass; So small but powerful. Those big eyes staring at me like a blinding spotlight. I took the picture and returned to the blanket; sitting this time, silently admiring his beauty from far; He kept us company for a little while, then he disappeared into the stars preying his next meal.
This once in a lifetime live encounter with this majestic creature filled me up with inspiration to create portraits of owls.
The my story for my love of owls doesn't end here. Years later I discovered that the Owl is the my totem animal for people born between November 23 -December21
"The Owl represents magic and wisdom. Native Americans say
is a emissary to the great spirit and a seeker of truth and wisdom, the Owl is an audacious spirit with a carefree nature. People born in the time of the Owl are often artistic, reckless and versatile gifted"
The owl who once more inspired me; "Knowledge speaks" 20" X 16" acrylic on canvas.
