"Out Of The Darkness"
Great-horned owls have always inspired me. The most fondest memory I have of them was when I was a teenager. I was sitting in the woods at our family property in Western Wisconsin. It was quiet. I remember hearing a sudden rush of air and right as I glanced to my left my heart dropped at this owl came swooping directly at me. In a split second it was perched on the limp just a few feet from me. It had absolutely no clue I was there. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. I was frozen with amazement. The rush of this magnificent animal from out of the shadows was so moving. I had witnessed an amazing moment in nature.
As I gazed on and watched it assess it's surroundings, it turned it's head towards me and we locked eyes. I saw a quick flinch radiate throughout it's body when it realized I was there. Instead of taking off, it began to head-bob up, down, side to side and in circles. I almost laughed it was so amusing. Then as quick as it came it flew off and disappeared in silence.
This was certainly a significant moment in my life. I was beginning to appreciate our wildlife one experience at a time. It was times like these that eventually lead me to pursuing my career wildlife conservation. I'll never forget that moment when I saw him swoop in from out of the dark. That feeling of your heart dropping from such a sight is something that can only be explained by experience. If you're a wildlife appreciator I'm sure you've had similar experiences to what I am describing and I hope you feel it in this painting just as I do.
