Barred Owl Sketch

Finished my sketch of the Barred owl.  He is pretty amazing and when I sketch birds I feel that I gain an intimacy with them.  It forces you to look closely at the details and the  personality that comes through.  This guy does seem to look deeply into you with those black eyes.  I hope I can capture that when I attempt to construct him out of fabric.  That is always the true challenge for me.

He is a beautiful sketch and I will enjoy seeing him evolve into a quilt. Love the new background. I got a yard of fabric to try for art pieces, has a brick or stone background with writing, so not sure how it all looks, but thought it might be fun to play with.

Can't wait to see the Barred Owl take shape in fabric. What kind of owl is it in your blog header? I visit (from 50ft away) a burrowing owl on the ranchland by our neighborhood. It thrills me everytime I see him (or barely see him :-)

That guy has an intense look! I know he is going to look great so I'll be waiting:)

Your sketch should be framed too!

I said that too - this needs to be framed. Also, I love the new blog header photo!
