Learning from owls...

This fellow has been sitting here, quietly for quite awhile. 

This little fellow is a newcomer.  Poor thing he certainly looks as lost as I felt when I was creating him.  But he taught me several lessons.

The first lesson is to follow my heart - not my 'get this done' gene.  The second one is that I need color and laughter and joy. Rather than trying to copy the subdued natural colors we see in 'real' creatures I hope to create a whole new subspecies representing the "Colorful Owl".
  I thank each and everyone of you for regularly stopping by to visit. Hopefully my blog will come back to life in the next few months.
I have made lots of promises to myself in this posting. For 'healing' purposes, if nothing else, I shall endeavor to keep all of them. 
                     "Relax, nothing is under control
                      Inhale the future, exhale the past."


  1. Oh my goodness, an entirely new population in your house! These are perfection, and I can’t wait to see more. Just like people, all colors!

  2. The owls are superb. Yes-please make more, and sell them-please!!!

  3. I love the idea of the Colourful Owl - I'm sure they'll have a host of unsuspected talents!

  4. Oh, the owls! Love the quote, Penny. Nothing is ever really under control.
