Hoo Hoo

Finally! All 3 of my entries are done for the WOP Contest, wahoo! Here is
"The Owl":

I decided to do a black and white piece because I figured it would go with more paintings. Whoever the gallery picks to be the judge for the contest selects what pieces are part of the show. Their selecting is completely arbitrary, but they do try to make up some sort of theme as they choose. Black and white goes with everything, so hopefully this one will have at least half a chance.

The sketch
I've gotten really lazy with my sketches lately. I'm just doing the core sections and putting a lot of faith in my free-hand brush skills. At least it's improving my painting abilities, whoever said laziness was a bad thing?

And finally........

"The Owl" - 11" x 14" Acrylic
Not only did I finish this this weekend, I also completed my postcard for the Postcards from the Edge auction and started a super cool new Disney painting! Busy, busy!
