You see, the school where I have the great pleasure of working, is holding a HUGE fundraiser next month. I painted this little guy to be one of the many wonderful items up for auction. So, yes, the money raising part is fabulous, but I love thinking a child will have with this hung in their room.
When I was a kid I had the most beautiful night light. It was a ceramic owl with glass eyes and inlaid glass beads across its front, and they all lit up just beautifully and gave off a bluish hue. And I felt safe. And this, my friends, is why I paint so darn many owls...I can't help it.
Hope they make you feel safe, too.
P.S. I still own my old night light, lucky me!
