First complete painting for 2009!!!

(click on image to enlarge)
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!

Very well done. I love it. The wood texture comes through so well, and the owl is precious. Great job, and good for you for sticking with it until it was done.

Linda said...

Oh, NOW I see what you meant about the owl and hole being cut out and fit together. I just couldn't quite imagine it before. This is fantastic! Congratulations on finishing a piece so early in the year..
