Great Horned Owl for Yesterday

I didn't have time to do a piece for my 75/75 project yesterday, so this afternoon I took a break from packing the car to paint this little study of the fifth Great Horned Owl for this project.  Funny but I wasn't crazy about painting birds in oil until I started doing these I'm really having fun with them.  I'm going to do a larger Great Horned Owl (at least a 9 x 12 - maybe bigger) for my gallery in Beaver Creek, Walt Horton Fine Art.

I'm packing the car to leave for Breckenridge in the morning where I'll be artist-in-residence for the City of Breckenridge for the month of July.  I'll live and paint in a cute little historic building just off the main street in Breck.  Looking forward to a beautiful month painting lupine and white puffy clouds!!

  1. This is a really beautiful painting.

  2. This is a really great painting!! Your wise and smart to paint this owl! I love the feel of it and sort of has a mystery to it too. Keep up the good work!
