Owls In Art

It has come to my attention that an art person called Alan Disparte has a “work on paper” entitled Hooting Yard, depicting transmogrified owls. Go and look at it here, and at his main page, or portal*, here. Hommage or coincidence? Who can say? I cannot help but notice that his name is an anagram of Natal Despair.

* Do people still refer to “web portals”, or has that phrase gone the way of “the information superhighway” and other once thrilling coinages? This is not the kind of thing I know about, although I think this very page you are reading ought to be known as The Hooting Yard Portal, or Lobby, or Vestibule.

  1. Perhaps this is another attempt at the “New Heraldry” you have previously described. I wonder if Mr. Disparte can be encouraged to paint more of the ornithological curiosities you have described on this important web-site.
