October's Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge - is a woodsy landscape with Woodblock Print on Paper, representing an "Owl on Gingko Branch" (Scops Owl Under Crescent Moon) by Ohara Koson, 1915.
This artwork reminds me of Dark Emperor & Other Poems of the Night by Joyce Sidman
"To all of you who crawl and creep,
who buzz and chirp and hoot and peep,
who wake at dusk and throw off sleep
Welcome to the night."
