My theme was to paint something depicting Inuit culture. After some research on traditional Inuit stories, I found one about the Fire Owl. In the story, two children have their fire stolen away by thieves, and they ask an owl to retrieve it for them. The Fire Owl takes the fire back and returns it to the children and their family, so they won't freeze.Watercolor and white gouache, with a little Photoshop on hot-press Fabriano. 8.5X11 inches
