This painting evolved from a journal page I did when I arrived in Oslo. Although I was terrified of travelling alone, it turned out that it was the perfect opportunity to tune in to myself. Instead of negotiating and trying to meet the needs of my family, I was free to actually stop and listen to the voice inside. It was very quiet at first. In fact, I couldn’t hear it at all. But after a week in Oslo, it was loud and clear. By the time I came home I could even hear my body asking for exercise, which is unheard of for me!!
To me, owls represent wisdom, and this painting is about hearing your own inner wisdom, tuning in and connecting to yourself.
