I’ve mentioned my family history with birds before, so whether they’re trendy or not, I’ll always love these feathered creatures because of my grandfather. I especially love this particular owl. If you’ve never watched them in motion, check out the crazy head-swivel action & downy lightness of their feathers in this video. I think they are remarkable animals; beautiful, with their heart-shaped face, eerie in a prehistoric way, and cute, all at the same time.

Do you paint portraits of animals? Which medium do you use, and where do you get your reference photos?
Thanks for stopping by today, and I’ll see you in the next post!
A woman artist is not deprived by cooking and having children, nor by nursing children with measles (even in triplicate) – one is in fact nourished by this rich life, provided one always does some work each day; even a single half hour, so that the images grow in one’s mind. I detest a day of no work, no music, no poetry.
Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975)
