" Who in the Woods "


"Who in the Woods" SOLD
8" x 10" acrylic on gessoed masonite
Art on the Avenue

I'm still working on the rodeo series, but I just had to take a brief diversion and paint this guy. After working with the intricate soft patterning of the feathers on this horned owl, I know why you rarely see one in the woods... they are perfectly camouflaged! This one at Dauset Trails Nature Center gave me a warning hiss after I snapped his picture.

I wonder what he's thinking? Lovely textures in the painting. I think his eyes would follow you around the room!
