A symbol of Creation, Magic and Illumination, The Raven has played a role in many cultural legends throughout time. Among the the Haida and Tlingit peoples of the Pacific Northwest, Raven is revered as a hero and helper of human beings and is often reflected in the bird's prominent position in the totems of the Northwest. The raven is believed to have placed the sun, moon and stars in the sky.

Mystic Messenger is available here.

Since I only occasionally hear  the owls at night, I go to Lowry Nature Center in Waconia for their Raptors in The Yard program to  learn and observe. They care for several injured raptors that are unable to be released back into the wild and hold educational programs each month. 

I love the barred owl. She is always so calm and serene. Quietly watching those of us that gather round for a chance to learn more of her.

Winter carries wisdom to be discovered as we settle in to the still time of the year.
This beautiful owl reflects the cool, quiet colors of winter as it sits in the snowy aerie. 

This piece is floated in a simple natural finished 2 inch deep frame. Shown here in a grouping of simliar paintings.  (all are available)

This little one has me seriously thinking of how fun it might be to have a studio bunny! Well, maybe.
Someday. For now I'll be content with the wild bunnies that live under my deck.

But isn't this one cute? I love how she turned out.

(And no messes to clean up after )
