Girl and Owl

Whew! I've been busy on my little blogging break. Still enjoying the classes I am doing but taking some time to paint things I want to paint in addition to the lessons. This painting called "Girl and Owl" is one of my recent works.  I used acrylic and mixed media on watercolor paper. This is the third painting with an owl that I have done, lol!  We can hear owls outside at night and somehow they are speaking to me and ending up in my paintings. Owls have such a captivating face with their intense forward-facing eyes.

I wonder what they are saying to each other when we hear them at night? They are definitely mysterious and a little eerie. What we have outside are barred owls.
Here is a link to a short Youtube video so you can see one and hear it's call.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to see what you have all been up to!
Hope you are having a creative week!

  1. Owls do seem to speak to me too! I love listening to them. The other night they responded to me when I hooted to them! It is so amazing.

    I really like your painting. It shows the connection that you have with the owl!
