Dopp-owl-ganger

I couldn't help but see two huge, dilated eyes in the knot holes on this ordinary piece of plywood, and the weathered silvery-gray color of wood banded with darker tones reminded me of the pattern on the Barred owl feathers. With the painted image of the owl superimposed against the plywood, the commonplace pattern took on a mythic, other-worldly quality.
