She's Finished!

This little Long Eared Owl is finally finished. Well, not exactly "finally." For me to complete her in two weeks is probably a record. She took 64 hours. Have received lots of compliments on FaceBook and that is always very nice for the ego. Most of the work was done before about 4 p.m. Which is time to feed the horse and the dog ... er ... Gizmo. Don't tell him I called him a dog! I would like to spend more night time hours painting/drawing, but there are still Miller Moths to contend with here. Thought they were gone, but this heat seems to have brought them back.

My class of students continues to go well!

Okay ... now for a watercolor painting. Decisions, decisions, which one to start ....

 Have a great day to all my fans and supporters out there.

I don't know how you managed to bring that beautiful little owl out from the background, but you did! I love it.

Amazing, just amazing (beautiful too).

Duene ... Surprised me too! I was afraid it would get too busy and the owl would be lost, even though I wanted her to be camouflaged in her natural surroundings. I think it is only the sharper strokes on the owl, and softer strokes on the tree. Thank you so much for your comment, and support.

Thank you Vicki! And you too. Your work just keeps getting better and better. Hope your feet are dry by now?! Sure is a strange weather year isn't it?!
