Midnight Messenger by Ironshod Midnight Messenger by Ironshod
I hope you like this seasonal themed artwork :) Here a white witch sends an urgent message by owl through the forest at midnight. What this message might say is for you to decide ;)

Published as a Yule card and appearing as December in my 2012 calendar.

Thanks to ^Elandria for the use of her photos as reference when I painted the figure.

I love everything. Took my breath away as soon as I laid eyes on the first page of artwork. Absolutely stunning and words fail me. So realistic and alive. I will be here often. Wow. I'm in love with that majestic snowy owl. I love this, I'm in heaven. Thank you for sharing your gift, it's heavenly to be surrounded by amazing works of art. So much for getting to sleep earlier.

She looks kind of smug and knowing. Something tells me that the message is a warning - I wonder if the piece of foliage on the letter is some sort of symbol...?
