This week we had two hawk visitors in our neighborhood and it was wonderful. I am always amazed as I watch them fly overhead and hear them call out to one another. When I looked at the canvas I had prepared for this week's image all I saw was the shape of a hawk...and so this guy appeared. I've spent quite a bit of time reading about animal symbolism and decided to also incorporate the words that relate specifically to hawk.
Hawk tells us to remain fully aware and that we may require a new perspective. Pay attention to details. Let go of anything that may limit you whether it is a belief or attitude or something material. Your potential is waiting to be fulfilled.
When I was in high school, one of the art projects was a series of drawings that began as one image which slowly morphed into another...something inanimate into something living. My project consisted of a ship turning into a hawk and I loved working on it...this reminded me of it. The hawk I drew when I was 16 years old is still beautifully framed and hanging over a fireplace in the home of the gentleman who purchased it from me in the first place. Thirty years ago. My first art sale.
