Treehouse portrait of the observer

The finishing touches to my first printing experiment: a few brushstrokes of watercolor and a colorful frame. This portrait is about a friend who has the spirit of a hawk. As a symbol the hawk is known as a protector and visionary. Flying high in the sky with an extremely keen vision, it can see the smallest creature down below. Like the hawk, my friend has a broad perspective and can see things most people miss. By spirit she has a close connection to animals and nature, and has the power to share information and impact the life of those around by other means than verbal communication.
