Ballyconnell , Ireland
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
A diver soars through the night sky beneath the full moon accompanied by another nocturnal creature -a beautiful white barn owl.
The barn owl is found in every county in Ireland, but is not seen very often. A barn owl is busiest at dusk (just before it gets dark) when it Is hunting for its dinner. I suppose it is called a "barn Owl" because it mainly lives in barns near farmhouses
.If you do see one, it looks ghostly, a whitish figure flying slowly; sailing over the ground and now and again swooping down to snatch a mouse, rat or insect.
This painting is like a visual nursery rhyme !
..Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
----A nursery rhyme from the 1700's..
