About Elizabeth [top photo].

You can see the wood texture through the shimmery paint.

The owl with green border, *Tecolote, voz y corazón*, is inspired by my owl mini-mural painted right outside of WORKS, which was inspired from an original painting I created featuring this owl/tekolotl. Also hanging: the artwork, *One Fire*, featured on the cover of Palabritas @hpalabritas ; *Conflicted* ; and *Yellow Leaves*.
