Making this “Wise One” has been a deepening experience. Getting up close to really see the details of this Great Horned Owl and his intense eyes, brought a sense of awe while scratching into the glass. I combined several reference photos to create this image, and visualized trees as feathers in the chest, which follow the shape of his form.
