"Macrame Memories" 8x10 Mixed Media on Wood
Today's painting was inspired by... yesterday's painting! I couldn't get the owl image that I "found" in yesterday's painting out of my head, so I decided to do a wood burning using it.
While creating today's painting, distant memories of macrame, latch hook kits, and avocado colored appliances came flooding back... Those memories had a definite influence on my color choices!
As I write this post there are currently 57,975 owl listings on etsy. They are in paintings and prints, jewelry, clothing, journals, pillows, toys and more - I seem to be seeing owls everywhere! The other day I saw the following button on my friend Jenny Blair's fabulous blog:
My Owl Barn is the go-to place for owl lovers and they are sharing the owl love by offering a free customizable and downloadable calendar filled with fantastic owl art created by some seriously talented artists!
I can see why owls are so popular right now... there is something very comforting about their familiar wide-eyed expressions. I have a feeling today's owl isn't my last...
