My 'Owl & Pussycat' kindly sponsored by Southgate Bath, will join over 60 individually designed and decorated sculptures that have entertained thousands of locals and visitors throughout the summer. I hope he and his cousins in the 'parliament of owls' will help raise lots of money for the charities.
Last weekend saw a spectacular display of all 82 owls together for the first and last time, on the Rec in Bath for the Farewell Hoot, where around 7000 owl fans flocked to see them and took part in lots of owl related fun activities.
The 'Owl & Pussycat' design I painted is based on the famous poem by Edward Lear.
I set them in a landscape of Wisteria which is a symbol of good luck in weddings and new ventures and Cherry blossom which signifies beauty and reminds us of the precious fragility of life.
Good luck Owl & Pussycat wherever you fly off to next!
