Peace in the Storm - Eastern Screech Owl

This little owl took shelter in this cozy hole in the sycamore outside my third floor window. Despite a snowstorm bearing down on us, he napped peacefully, the snow accumulating on his head. I took his photo to use as a reference for this painting. I learned a powerful lesson about trusting God from this little owl!
