Inspired by owls






The first three photos were taken through windows in a gallery in North Carolina. I don't know the name of the artist or the gallery, but Jim knew I would love these! I painted my own interpretation of them in my small leather journal. I used acrylic and graphite. I love the whimsy of these, especially the larger one on the top.

Cute little owls. I like your work! I admire painters of all types, as I can only draw with graphite. Black and white gets so boring =(
