i just LOVE things with history and i so enjoy creating art that i can put my story into and then pass on to others, where a new story for each piece begins. the pieces in our house i adore the most, are the things i grew up with-the coffee table that my parent’s got as a wedding gift, the stained glass windows my mom found at an antique shop, and the nestle clock with the moon my mom received for baking so many chocolate chip cookies.
as a kid, the statue stood as big as me! and it had these incredible marble eyes that made it look alive! the story is that this statue was lost during a move along with a pool cue. i didn’t realize until now, just how much that owl meant to me.
so many people ask me, “what’s your connection to owls?” and NOW i see it! it’s like these owls have been waiting for me to get to a point where i recognize their importance in my life.
pps. i’ve been loving documenting my painting process, so on Wednesday i’ll be posting a new painting with photos from start to finish!
