Here is my illustration for January, inspired by the soundless flight of a barn owl, clear and still moonlit nights, crystal snowflakes and snowdrops. I have used some of the illustrations in a little artist book entitled "Silent flight". It has been a joy to create several of these and experiment with variations for the cover design, each book will be slightly different. I have also used some of the elements in the design in my calendar.
