Thanks Kelley, so much... we all have moved on with life, & we are all closer now. We will take care of one another & watch out for each other. The owls never left. I enjoy watching them each day flying, screeching, & hooting at night :D

Carla, That's awful about your neighbor, but your story regarding the owls is amazing.

San Tan Valley, AZ - United States

I didn't know if it was true or not about owls, that they are seen before & after a death. But.... a few weeks ago a tragedy struck here in my neighborhood. My neighbor was murdered, shot 4 times to the head & chest by a madman who was never caught yet. She was a wife & mother of 2, this was to be their dream home & a new start for the family. The police & news crew parked outside for 2 days & 2 nights. The night after the murder, my pine trees were flooded with owls, & they have never left. Each day since then, they fly through my yard screeching right before sunset, & at night, they sit about the tops of the pines and hoot throughout the night.

Carla Carson replied:

My friend/neighbor & I walk every night. We talked about the owls, & decided that like all animals, they sense tragedy & death. They feel & sense things that humans cannot. So we thought maybe they feel a sense of refuge & peace in my trees. They feel safe & calm here, & they make me feel the same. They are welcomed & loved here..... :)

Ocala, FL - United States

Dear Carla, So true about the owl! My family raised Great Horned Owls when I was a kid, so as a toddler I was in and out out their pens... You've done right by them here in this portrait! Happy holidays! F/V

Carla Carson replied:

Thank You so much Kelley! what a treat that must have been for you! They are just so magnificent & full of mystery! I Love them as they are my favorite of all birds... :)

Pickering, ON - Canada

Absolutely beautiful work Carla! The Owl personifies wisdom, knowledge and human experience. It's associated with the goddess Athena and Minerva, the goddess of wisdom and promoter of sciences, arts and handicrafts. I have been working with the owl energies for a couple of years now and it's a wonderful symbol of transformation. Here's to wonderful new changes that I wish for you and artists around the world in 2012!

Carla Carson replied:

Thank you so much Maria! I dont know if you know who Avia Venefica is? I love to read the things she posts. She is big on symbols & totems & such. You should look her up. I used to have an owl that seemed to watch me from one of my pine trees. When I would run or ride my bike, in the past year or more, one would fly close, so close I could feel the wind from its wings. It would startle me as I would think it was going to grab my head!! Then I got used to it & didnt fear them anymore. I actually miss it or them??? I ran right by one that was eating a rabbit & he just looked at me with those big round eyes, he didnt even fly away. He was not frightened by me & I was only about 6 ft from him. Oh well, thank you for the lovely post, & I will continue to look for my owls return! Thank you again, Carla :)

Whitewater, CO - United States

Nice work Carla, love the colors! We've had a few different owls nesting nearby over the years.

Carla Carson replied:

Thank you so much Allen,, I was quite pleased as to how it turned out. I think because I went into it with the thought of just having fun with it kinda carefree? I hung him on my own wall :) I think I love the owl because of the mystery behind it & those eyes!! I love doing eyes the most on everything. Thank you so much again Allen & enjoy your beautiful visitors! Carla :)

Absolutely lovely!

Carla Carson replied:

Thank you so much Vic! I was really pleased with this & had so much fun doing it. Carla :)

Black Hawk, CO - United States

Such a mysterious and symbolic creature. And painted in your glorious style. We have owls in the forest where I live and I sometimes hear them at night. Stunning art, Carla.

Carla Carson replied:

Thank you so much Carol. Im a big believer in that everything happens for a reason. And with that, Im a big believer in signs, symbolism, & dreams. I dont belive in coincidence, only fate. I think if we are still & quiet & listen, we can then understand, its natures/Gods way of communicating with us. Thank you again for the wonderful words Carol,,,,, Carla :)

Colorado Springs, CO - United States

I had a creepy childhood dream about a man sized Owl,....so they've always spooked me a bit.

Washoe Valley, NV - United States

Beautiful work Carla!

Carla Carson replied:

Sydney, NS - Australia

thank you Carla for such kind words...the feelings are utual...I treasure those fine artists like yourself and others for whom I have great respect. PS: Day two here after we moved in, the local owl sat on the fance, down from the tree, to give us a hoot...I knew we'd be happy. We've got Oscar cat just to complete the happiness. Cheers, xxV Have you seen my photo: Neighbourhood Owl Family? Quite a lovely moment/story, too. Lucky US.

Carla Carson replied:

Im going to go check that out now Vivian..... The one I had follow me, it was twice on my runs & once when I took my bike out. It scares me a little cause I was afraid he was going to grab my head?? I dont know if he thought I was a quick meal?? lol! & he misjudged my proportions... ha ha ha maybe he just liked me :D I ran past one also that was eating a dead rabbit. He didnt even get scared & I was only about 2 feet from him.. he just looked at me & kept eating. OK, off to check out your owls!! Carla :)

Sydney, NS - Australia

Oh, I love this so much, Carla. I'm all for cats and owls , and didn't know the connection, but I get it now . Clever Cris. Clever Carla. xxV

Carla Carson replied:

Thank you Mz Vivian! I went into this one saying to myself "Im going to be free with this & not treat it like brain surgery" lol! I just wanted to have fun with it because it was for me. My gift from me to me :) I wanted to add a subtle very subtle splash of color too, so & introduced the pastels into it. I like the way it turned out. They also believe that when a owl comes to you, you are lucky & you share the same gifts & energy & connection. Thank you again Vivian, it always means so much to me when you like something of mine as I respect you & your work tremendously!!!! Carla :)

Colorado Springs, CO - United States

Beautifully done Carla,...very nice........but if you ask me,...they're "flying cats" :D

Carla Carson replied:

Thank you Cristopher, so you were reading up on the symbolism of owls too??? hmmmmmm, they were compared to cats in the past as they both hold the same gifts.. I love both. Believe it or not, last year I had a owl that watched me from one of my pine trees. He would sometimes go off with me on my runs!!! He would get so close, I could feel the wind from his wing!!! Cool! I heard they were spirit guides, so I felt like I was being taken care of & guarded... Again, thank you for the nice comment Cris :D
