Take care what you prey for

Take Care What You Prey For

Piece description from the artist

Always enamored by the Great Blue Heron, I began to draw one and found myself musing on how the great birds are so finely tuned to their environment, and how effectively they choose and dispatch their prey. As humans, we aren't always so adept at understanding how we fit into our world, and our lack of self understanding and acceptance of who we are, leads us to grasp for things we cannot handle or should not have. From the spiritual perspective, we often pray for things that are not right for us, and not getting the answers we want, go ahead and try to make something happen that we aren't ready for. Thus the title, "Take Care What You Prey For."
