Done with Atletier acrylics on 11" X 14" canvas.




I enjoyed this one very much and
learned a great deal.   The owl's
movement with his head twisted over
the shoulder gave me the most challenge.






Thanks, Dennis

How delightful to see you work again. 

This is lovely - for a moment I thought it was done on scratchboard.

Love the depth in his eyes.
