When I was in Tn. visiting family a few months ago.... my daughter Lisa ask me to paint her an owl. She already had a spot on the wall where she wanted to hang it! Lisa has a "thing" for owls and I have to admit I never really payed much attention to owls before and I found them to be very beautiful. I really enjoyed doing this for her and I also learned a great deal from painting it. I did no blending in some areas and lots of blending in others... I like the results. I feel I got strong clean colors and I like the combined methods of painting. Size is 24 x 36 (big spot on the wall!) oil on linen.
