Painting In Progress – By The Light of the Moon

Owl Moon WIP

In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for owls.  Every year I’m inspired to create several artworks featuring owls and that interest is still going strong.  I find everything about them to be fascinating and, well… I simply love to paint them.  It would seem lots of other people share my love of owls because of all my art, the paintings of owls are the most popular and sell the quickest too.  And, they do say if you are creating something that sells, you should keep making more of it. Hey, that works for me!

Here is the newest painting of a barred owl in the works.  In the past year or so, the moon also seems to be a recurring theme for me.   I’ve found myself drawn to create it repeatedly.  I’m beginning to feel a little like the Richard Dryfus character in that 1977 movie “Close Encounters”, who was compelled to create the mountain where the alien ship landed.   Whoa…
