476 Are you wondering where I got the name for my Art show?  It is because I am painting owls.  Great Horned Owls to be precise.  I hope to get a  Great Grey owl painting too…but time will tell.  I am also painting flowers.  🙂 So I have been flowing between watercolour flowers and acrylic birds.  Birds have really captured me.  I am loving painting them. So here is the start.

This spring the most magical thing happened…Great Horned Owls took over a Ravens nest at a local school.  It was AMAZING.  I spent a fair amount of time there photographing them.  I don’t know if in my lifetime I will ever have the chance to see owls nest again but I have photos to work from for the next few years.  It was truly a gift from Mother Earth.

I have completed the eyes.  I seem to need to get the eyes all finalized before I move on.   I have started on the branches that surround the baby male owl.  🙂  It had fledged to branches close by the nest when I was there taking photos.

Working on the head.  I am pleased with how it is turning out.

Happy Thanksgiving in Canada.  Our family will be celebrating it in just a few weeks when my show is completed.  🙂
