My finished painting…Aim for the moon, if you miss, you may hit a star….w. clement stone. I loved the journey of designing this and deciding with each step what direction the painting will go. It was great fun. My goal is to have fun and I did. Thanks for sharing this with me.

 

Shapes

Sharing layer one of my owl mixed media painting, just the shapes right now. In front of the moon is a great horned owl, you can just see the shape. Next comes a snow owl, then a barn owl, a sweet little saw whet owl. At the bottom a burrowing owl with the baby in the burrow. Keep checking back for progress, this is really going to be a fun picture to put together! Hope you think it is interesting and as always….thank you for checking in.
