This Owl Lady is Carrying Love

The prompt at Art Journal Journey this month is Frida Kahlo.  I have long loved the symbolism of her paintings and her use of animal imagery.  I once created a journal cover using a photograph of her for a silhouette profile.

My art journal page of a woman with the body of an owl was inspired by Kahlo's bird paintings and this painting called The Wounded Deer.  

For her owl body and the leaves, I used my Three Owls and a Branch stencil from Stencil Girl.   After all, who says this stencil can only be used for proper owls?

Your comments make me so happy and let me know you were here. I read and treasure every comment and will happily answer any questions as soon as I can.
