I have been so excited to share this piece (it's now available in the shop)! It was commissioned for a birthday present and so it has had to be tucked away in my mind and not shared here. But now, the original has been presented to its owner and I can lift the curtain on my latest painting.
I did this painting from the perspective of a mother and child, and I love how their eyes are half-shut from the embrace. I chose these two animals due to their special meaning between the owner and his mother. The owl represented her, and the wolf her son.
So it has a lot of symbolism in it. I love a good painting that has a story to tell. Truth be told I don't really like knowing all of its secrets, just enough. Even though I painted it, it seems like it's still somewhat of a mystery to me. I prefer to keep it that way.
