finding models

I love watching this fantastic webcam of a barn owl nesting box in San Diego.
Today the owl was standing on one foot, very sleepy, so I got out the paints and painted her:
I then scanned the painting, and printed it on other kinds of paper, here is one version on a page of text, ready to collage into my journal:
So here in the studio, I am able to get an owl to model for me!  What a miraculous time we live in.

"Nature and meditation have the ability to draw us to our deeper selves, where we finally realize that we are not boring, nor isolated, nor in need of external excitement to be happy, but a part of the great harmony of all living things."  --Marney Ward
