He’s finished ! Took a while….
I have been a bit “off” lately, I’ve wanted to finish a couple of paintings but haven’t felt up to it. To do art you have to concentrate, work out what you are doing, then act on it. I could think what I wanted to do but could not do it. I think I had been working so hard towards the two craft fairs I did a couple of weeks ago that I had run out of steam. So it’s good to be able to paint again. I love this little owl, he’s only tiny but I think he’s a real character. He should be going to a new owner today.
this is another work in progress. Little owl, acrylic on canvas.
The smallest species of owl in the country I think. I’m adding holly branches to make it more seasonal.
The picture is about 6 inches by 4 inches. I want to work on the feathers and legs and feet.
Those eyes look like they are about to blink at me, and I can imagine the soft but strong feathers fluffed up against a north wind…
As the nursery rhyme goes. .
The North Wind shall blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what shall poor Robin do then?
He’ll sit in a barn,
And kerp himself warm,
And tuck his head under his wing
