18" by 24" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted.
This piece is my first owl and I had alla prima much fun with it! It is not quite finished as I began later in the day. I work on most of my pieces which is a fancy way of saying that I strive to finish a painting in one sitting or day with breaks throughout the day but I began this one later and I don't do well after about 11 at night so I will be tweeking it a bit tomorrow...especially the feathers on the side and the feet! I actually had a request from a client in Richmond who wanted me to take a painting of an owl to my gallery up there the next time I go up which is next week. I will definitely do another one as I love their proud faces and the snowy owls have such pretty contrast. It is so hard to believe that tomorrow is Friday again! Hope your week has been a good one. Tomorrow is my last day to subscribe or comment for this month's drawing for a free painting. I will announce the winner on Saturday! Thanks to everyone who has participated!
