"I'm not sure why owls have come to symbolize WISDOM across many cultures, but it might have to do with the way they seem so alert, wide-eyed, and still. Though playfully rendered, and a little 'cartoonish', this owl seems to show those wise qualities to me. A good reminder of the benefits of stillness. Maybe for a study? Maybe for a playroom? I had so much fun painting this one!" -- Chris Rice
