Folks That Like Hooters...will enjoy this post

Wwhooooooo
else is amazed by owls and birds ?

Spring is such a great time
 to photograph, observe, listen, and enjoy them all

lately I have been finishing up an order of owls 
for a gift shop
Here is my progress so far
 Nothing completely finished just yet...
but soon

 a swirl in the paints and matte gel medium
 I just use my finger to lay on some colors and texture
every owl turns out a little differently


I use reclaimed  birch or poplar wood 
for the owls and the back board
with some real preserved bark for added effect
which is a bit
 folk artsy I suppose
let me know what you think

start is always with a basic cut out of owls on wood

Well I love them!! How many do you make at a time? I would find it hard to keep doing it even if they turned out different, no stamina LOL. Happy WOYWW, Cindy #56
