Owls have been following me all week, so I decided to follow one back. In the span of four days I’ve been fanned in the face with the real wing of an owl, first at @massaudubon and then at @yeswolfspirit . Both times, it was pointed out to me that owl anatomy does not require outer ears to hear 🌙 I’m carrying that with me. #barnowl #innerlistening #wildlife #watercolor #illustration #nightstudio

Windows is a beautiful ode to simplicity- a reminder of the joy and wonder that constantly surrounds us if we just take a moment to look. Julia Denos’s evocative text is the perfect match to E.B. Goodale’s warm, mixed-media images; this is definitely a book you won’t want to miss!
We tried some mixed media art ourselves, combining paint and cut paper in imitation of the windows we saw in the book. If you haven’t done “scrape” painting before, you’re in for a treat! The method is so fun, and the results are totally gorgeous!
