Great Horned Owl

2010.6.6 Great Horned Owl

 

Gorgeous. I like this one so much, I recently set it aside to frame for myself. So when all the others are sold off at art shows, this will be one of the few I save to enjoy at home. The rest can fly away free.

I think this one is successful because I knew when to stop fussing with it. I like how the chest feathers fade away into the space for the name, initials, and date.
