I purchased this little owl ornament from West Elm. Something about him just spoke to me.
Only later did I realize that he is my talisman for 2014. The dictionery defines a talisman as "an object that is believed to have magical powers and to cause good things to happen to the person who has it." Artists believe in magic, don't you agree?
For me, this wise owl represents: optimistically pursuing my artistic goals, growing my skills and staying on track this year. The latter phrase refers back to My Word for 2014 - Focus.
What talismans do you own? Do you have talismans for your art?
