Horned Owl

Its day-3 of Art Every Day Month and I am happy to be participating. Tonight I broke a long procrastination spell of not painting to finishing this owl in one sitting. I had the outline drawn about 3 weeks back and since then the canvas was sitting on the coffee table, waiting for progress.  And crocheting kept winning for my time and attention these past two weeks. Today, I was having some tough luck with crochet stuff and switched back to painting. I really needed to handle some paint today as I need to finish a commissioned piece that is already late and the reason for my procrastination. 

So, here is to my little henna-style owl, painted with acrylics on a 9x9" gallery wrapped canvas. I picked up a set of 4 of these on sale from Blick about 2-3 months back. The wol is textured with gold on a brown background with black textured lines. The sides are painted too. Now all he needs is a good home :)
