Keeper of the Nest

Owls are powerful and wise hunters. Many of them are nocturnal moon gazing birds but some are active during the twilight hours of dawn and dusk.
The snowy owl is a guardian, she watches over the small faerie and the nest. The eggs in the nest are unfamiliar, but grow stronger as each day passes, waiting to begin the circle of life.
I painted this as a gift for someone dear to me. She was attentive for many a year and I will never forget her kindness.
