Acrylic 11 x 8" (Sold)
Fence posts seem to be the perch of choice for Little Owls and when I spotted this one on the edge of a horse field I knew I had to paint an owl on top of it. I loved the textures in the wood. Keeping the background a scumbled mix of greens focuses the eye on the Little Owl and its small stature. Owls that hunt during daylight have yellow eyes whereas night hunters have black eyes. Nature is pretty amazing.
