owls and things.

 I've had a little day dream about having a tiny owl as a pet.
So I painted one,
 ...and I made one. He's a little barn owl. A bit lumpy-as he's the first, so if I make more, maybe I'll develop a pattern and work out the bumps. He's about 2 inches tall I guess.
His name is Simon.

Work in progress, detail.
Thank you for visiting!

Norton will love being in the company of such fine feathered friends. :~) I love love the painting. I hope you don't let that one go. Only two inches! What great texture and color. He/She does need company.

Only two inches tall?! Amazing detailed work.If I had done something that small, I’d have felt it was tedious. ;) I love Simon’s personality, I feel he does have one, and for some reason I feel it most in the profile view. Also, I just love his feet in both photos! The first painting is charming! This is not from a photo, of course, and I feel your imagination at work in this one. I bet your work in progress has critters with feathers. Not a tough guess, I think I see the shapes and I know what you like. Great work, Debra, and lots of fun!

Wow Debra I love your owl painting...just adorable and Simon is just perfect. He made me smile for sure friend. Can't wait to see the finished work in progress. Hugs!
I got out my ruler to see exactly how tall a 2" owl would be. TINY! He's cool. I especially like the tiny owl using the mushroom for an umbrella. I always leave my visit here in wonder.
xx, Carol

The mushroom and the owl - a winning combination, Debra. Love the way you think (& create)!
Always love your paintings and creations! Such a cute owl!
It is always a delight to stop by and to see what you are painting or creating! Both owls are so sweet!
The owlet sheltering under the toadstool is absolutely adorable! xo
