Owl Fades Away.
Limited Edition Print by Mike Heseltine

A Limited Edition signed print, framed in oak, supplied on A3 hand made paper with a weight of 40 gms (image size is 30cm by 22.5cm). The paper is from Nepal and is the inner bark of the Lokta bush. Each print is signed by the artist and the print run is limited to 1000. As the paper is hand made, each print is totally unique and will have different textures or marks produced by the paper making process. Please note that colours on screen may be very slightly different from the original print you will receive.

A semi abstract drawing of an owl fading away into the night. The drawing was inspired by a magical moment one evening when a short eared owl suddenly hovered above us. Time seemed to stand still and for a few brief seconds we had no thoughts, no distractions and no concerns. We were just absorbed by the moment and in so being, we seemed to experience an awareness and connection with not only the owl, but with everything.

The way the owl melts into the darkness, hints at the way everything is connected and everything is transient. The marks defining the owl are the same as those that define the background. We are all made of the same stuff and ultimately all return to the same state. I wanted to try and capture the connection between the owl, the space around the owl and myself as the viewer. As per Buddhist philosophy, the concept of individuality is an illusion and ultimately we are all one.

"Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose to our lives." ― Brené Brown,

"But I’ll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything." – Alan Watts
