'Circle of Life'

'Circle of Life' A4 Watercolour on paper, (c) 2012 by Shiloh Moore

This image has been bubbling in my mind for months. It has been begging to be created. I drew it with Pitt Pen while lying down, then worked on it with watercolours sitting up for short spurts, then resting in between. I imagined a curvaceous tree at the heart of a circle of life, home to a wise owl, a bird, a lizard, a spider with its web. Surrounded on the ground by flowers, a deer, butterflies and a dragonfly in the air, all being enjoyed by a little girl with pigtails on a swing. Innocence, life, beauty, joy, nature. Happiness.

  1. Cute! There are lots of little deer like that here on Vancouver Island; they get into people's gardens and eat the vegetables :) Jacqui xx

    1. Thanks Sarah! I love that birdie too - I did a little series of 3 4x4" paintings of an owl, a butterfly and this birdie, which I did for my cousin's daughter's bedroom. So she's appeared before, but I thought she would suit this piccie perfectly and she wanted to be included :) Thanks for the feedback! xx love shi
