Three Little Birds! Everyone thinks of owls when they want to conjure up wisdom. People also think of peace when they hear Bob Marley's song Three Little Birds. These darlings just wanted to come into the world to delight viewers. I was sitting at my desk and practicing an art technique to elicit something from my subconscious mind. I placed my hair-cutting scissors on the page, and voila! Three eyes and three noses appeared. Then the bodies. They needed something to sit on, and I held a branch over them and drew the outlines of the shadow. People around the world who bought original prints still have them hanging in their homes. Amazing. I am willing to part with one of the last originals, reluctantly, I might add. You can own a reproduction, though. In fact, you can own magnets, tiles, and even a clock as well. Visit www.cafepress.com/risaspieces and check out what is available. One way to encourage peace is through acts of goodwill. I know I always need some small gift item, and perhaps you do, too. You can buy one owl magnet or a bag! Small gestures go a long way.
