Ever since my moment with the Barred Owl this winter, I have kept her in my thoughts. I have relived that moment in my mind many times, and it always serves as a reminder to me of the quiet beauty that is all around us, and it brings me a sense of peace that I can’t explain.
Owls have been a symbol mythology in many cultures for thousands of years. Their round, expressive faces and wide eyes have been source of inspiration for many writers and artists. Here are a few paintings and prints I just love, from Etsy sellers. Click the links below each one to visit their individual shops.
