This is how my first serious painting looks like and I chose to paint an owl. That was like 6 years ago I think :D Very few had seen this. When I was painting this, I was thinking “If I were an owl, I would be able to hear the sweet whispers of lovers in the park.”…yep, in case you are wondering, those are sound waves, owls have such fantastic hearing that’s simply amazing!! I always treasure the beginner’s spirit and I kept reminding myself not to lose it….because once you become used to something, it loses that magic, It is now nicely framed and hanging in the most intimate part of my apartment. For those of you who may be curious to see how my owls look like now, you can check them out at my udonchow gallery here in RB :D

    So lovely and so very special Ellen. i love the rapt expression on her face as she is listening to the lover’s in the park

  • Yes indeed this piece is very special to me, though she may not look as vibrant or as polished compared to my current owls, she’s still awesome in my eyes…yes, I’m very sentimental :D
