Owl after Owl

Owl after Owl puzzle boxThis painting began during my tenure at Providence City Arts when I received the assignment to teach a class focused on identity and art to pre-teen girls, many of whom had just moved from the Dominican Republic. I showed them work from Hilma Af Klint as well as from the women artists of Cape Dorset. We painted together. I titled my painting “Owl after Hilma Af Klint.” I sent the painting into the world for a year – but then I brought it back into the studio. It wanted one more owl. And then another…and then another…

More recently, a friend took this puzzle to Myanmar, where, she tells me, owls bring luck.

May this puzzle bring you luck as well!
