Owl is feminine, moon, magic, prophecy, wisdom. She carries a message.
There is a river of birds in migration…..
A nation of women with wings’

I rarely paint tropical birds. This one is a commission. I had a housecleaning client who had a solarium where he kept some very large parrots in some very large cages with their very large doors open. The birds hated me. I don’t think it was personal, but rather because I carried a hugh feather duster in my belt. One of them used to hide in closets and spring out at me. I had similar experiences with other parrots on my client list. I was bitten and attacked a number of times. To this day I give them a wide berth but I understand that their owners love them.

The raven is a bird of mysticism and magic. One of the myths surrounding the raven is that it stole the sunlight from one who would keep the world in darkness.

I love wild birds of prey. Being the totem spirit birds that they are….. I like to include an embellishment from the human world such as this little border on the top of M. Hawk’s folded wing. It suggests to me reverence for the animal world.

‘Bird Speak’ pays tribute to all cultures where spirit animals are honored. The circle of life and death….totem birds protecting…..feminine moon….healing…..The Divine.

This raven has scavenged a shiny gold bell. Perhaps he is bringing it home to decorate the family nest.

Angel kittys came about for me because of a gift that I made for my daughter. Now I find myself painting them for my granddaughters.

Prince Charles is perched on the street sign in front of our house. Well….he isn’t really there, but the sign is. My daughter-in-law has a parrot. “Schmutz” doesn’t like anyone but Kathy. He has “buffaloed” two cats and 2 dogs in the house. Birds are quite formidable.

I painted another snowy owl last year about this time. I called him “Hedwig.” I love the snowy owls and the barn owls. We have an owl close to our house…I have never seen him…who calls at night in the summer. Very nice to hear.
