I was inspired to title this work "Breakable" after I completed the eyes of the Barred Owl. I found it's gaze to be very visually compelling, continually drawing my own eyes back to those glassy orbs -- the words "breakable" and "fragile" crept into my consciousness and connections with those words formed with other breakable connections contained within the work and in my interaction both as maker and viewer.
