Finished: Barred Owl

I finished the Barred Owl Saturday - just in time for the Sunday midnight deadline to enter the Randy Higbee Gallery's 6" Squared Exhibition & Sale.  Hopefully, this one and Hoot Owl (my last 6x6 of the Great Horned Owl) make the cut! I think they look very nice together as a pair.

Hi Kelly,

I love these two owl pieces. I am intrigued by your loose underpainting technique; I think it is very effective. Good luck with the Exhibition entry!

Thank you Gabrielle! Good news -- I was notified that both owls were accepted into the exhibition.

Hi Bob - Thanks for your lovely comment and for sharing the link to your photos! I had the pleasure of photographing some barred owl owlets back in the spring...I hope to make a painting someday from my photos.
