As you may or may not already know, birds are pretty much the best. When I meet someone else who loves them too, I just know we are going to be instant friends. There may be one person who loves owls as much, if not more, than I do. This semester, she kept hearing a friendly hoot close by her window, and finally she was able to spot a Great Horned Owl! How neat is that?
So, to commemorate her personal experience with such a majestic fowl, I painted one just for her:
I love it when people develop a personal connection or have a breath-taking experience with something wild. I think experiences like that alter one's perspective in the most marvelous of ways. An owl is a pretty incredible animal to connect with, too. Is there an animal that you naturally feel connected to?
