Donk!!!

English weather is never predictable, as this Long-eared Owl found out. After a beautiful summers day, the evening draws in bringing with it a rain shower casting a purple hue. The Long-eared Owl finds shelter on an old oak tree under some bracket fungi, which handily stops the worst of the wet. But as the rain persists it runs down the fungi above and drops straight down onto the owls head below DONK!!! This piece captures the moment when a droplet hits the owl, he screws up his face on one side, showing how annoyed he is by the so called English summer!!! A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the owl, fungi and tree was achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery.
