Art: Humie by Artist Vicky Knowles
I created Humie for the Ripped Off exhibit.   Humie is my answer to Patience Anders' "Owlie," a funny little owl with a human face, just relaxing in the woods under the moon.  In my version, obviously, I've painted a funny little human with an owl face, hence the name, "Humie."  She's just going about her human/owl business (also in the woods, under the moon) as such mysterious nocturnal creatures tend to do.

For this piece I also incorporated Patience's love for using "found objects" as painting surfaces.  This painting was done on a wooden plaque I had picked up at a thrift store many years ago.   I knew that it would not be right to use anything "new" as that would not be in the true spirit of Patience.  I also continued the painting along the sides, as Patience frequently does.
