barn owl

I painted this barn owl today in my studio (using the bird book as reference). I cut it out and put it against different backgrounds to use in my glass tile pendants. This way I can not only have a variety of backgrounds for my pendants, but I can also collage it into one of my paintings in the future. And that, my friends, is how you stretch one little painting out. If I had photo shop I am sure I could play with it even more, but I am happy with the owl itself and all of it's incarnations.

I have seen many owls in my life, but I have yet to see the mysterious and beautiful barn owl. I really really hope I do someday.

We have some Bard Owls living right outside our window - or at least hunting/hanging out right outside our window. The other night one was doing its call - and then started making a growling sound. It was sooooo strange! Sounded like a bear!

Ooops! I meant Barred Owl. (Sounds like Bard Owl, though!)
