I have declared it FINISHED!!! I made a few changes on the owl, added a bit more red/brown to the bark, and also hit bits of the bark with highlights (just a tiny bit) so I am happy to have completed my first painting this year... although I started it months ago. Regardless, it is finished. This piece measures approx. 11x14 inches. Thanks to everyone who did leave comments to me here or on yahoo groups!
