Inspiration

I was inspired by Dylan Thomas's famous poem ' Fern Hill' which describes childhood memories of visiting and staying with his Aunt at her farm - Fern Hill. I was particularly taken by the visual idea of the owls bearing the farm away as the young Dylan slept. Barn Owls are a protected species.
