This is my oil painting of a long eared owl.
relatively uncommon and very seldom
spotted around here
they are here in the winter
and spend the summer farther to the north in Canada.
I like the rusty reddish color of its feathers
and its white" mustache and beard "
|I wanted it to appear to be at night|
in the moonlight
I painted on a large
(36 " by 16 ")
piece of old roofing slate
at least I think it used to be part of a roof at one time
painting on slate is very different
I think it is fun to work with the bumpiness of its surface
It works well with the palette knife style I used
