Not Just An #Animal #Artist

When I come across artist websites I do not imagine at that moment that they are in fact defined by other activities as well.  When you come across an Accountant you might also apply the same rule?

As or myself, I am the embodiment of both Artist and Accountant (but from a previous life before children)!  And other stuff that I do.

Spot the difference:

I also design websites for artists and have finalised a transfer of a website I manage to the WordPress platform today for a dear artist friend whose fantastic birds and animal drawings and painting scan be found here. Take a look at another approach to the same subject of animals and birds by Jilly Cobbe.

More Lost Things – The Stopwatch

Just a few tiny details to add and my Barn Owl will be completed.

This is another image for my series of Lost Things (along with the Lost Pearl and the Golden Bell) and a continuing theme of gold leaf moons. The captivating Barn Owl.  Both feared and venerated throughout history and a variety of cultures the owl has been associated with both evil and wisdom.  Thankfully superstitions such as its association with witches have died away and we can count ourselves lucky if we manage to enjoy a glimpse of this fascinating night time hunter.
