Day 47. Wallpaper Bird

Some days I just feel the need to draw. Today was one of them. I grabbed my favorite Uniball pen, a dash of watercolor and pulled out this cool old piece of wallpaper. This sheet of wallpaper  made me feel – nostalgic. And that feeling took me back to a fond memory from childhood. I recalled this elderly gentlemen in our neighborhood who kept a pet owl. I remember getting to touch it and look into its gigantic eyes. Standing just inches away from it. I was a little fella at the time and it seemed like the owls head was bigger than my own. It was wild and more incredible than anything I had ever seen on Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. (A favorite animal show from my childhood.) It’s one of those vivid memories that will always stay with me. If only rarely revisited when stumbling upon a nostalgic trigger. Enjoy.
