Collection: Looking Ahead, Looking Behind

They started as examples for the pastel class. I forget why but I spent time analysing why their references spoke to me. The jay looking over his shoulder, could it be worried? ... about the consequences of its actions? The owl peeking around a corner, could it be anxious? ... about what the future will bring? Perhaps I am projecting. ;) Even though the owl is beautiful and the jay colorful the underlying current is what I think attracted me. I'm forever looking back in self-doubt and ahead in anxious anticipation. Creating art helps me be in THIS moment.
