Got my owl back on Sunday from last month's art class. OMG, he's so cute! I don't think I realized how dark blue he would be, but I love the way the color came out. I know, I really should pay more attention to color when I'm doing, umm, art, but it just doesn't really happen that much. Cue art teacher to roll her eyes here. Yup- I'm kind of a fly by the seat of your pants artist. Sometimes it works out great for me (see owl pictures) and sometimes, not so great. And those are the ones you don't see posted here.
This guy is pretty good sized- like a bit over to feet tall. I tucked him into the mulch of my garden this evening. If my dogs break him I am going to be very mad. But I don't think they will. It would only be in a moment of protecting-the-yard-from-the-coyotes running around like crazy that something like that might happen. Because that coyote could just come right through that fence, you know (just kidding). My daughter and I agree that the owl needs to be raised up a bit to show him off in the garden.
Here's the back with the cool sunflowers. My amazing photography skills really show this off with all the glare and such, don't you think? It's the phone camera- that's the problem. Like I would have noticed with my regular camera, lol.
I'll take another shot of him in the garden and you can see how cute he REALLY is. When it's light. :)
