I’m on hiatus from painting following shoulder surgery (haven’t tried painting left-handed, yet!). But in the interim, I want to share one of most favorite sightings — and paintings — yet:
I saw this wonderful Great Horned Owl on a visit in May to Maumee Bay State Park on the shores of Lake Erie, in Ohio. She was keeping an eye on her newly-fledged chick, and I was able to watch her for quite awhile. I love this mysterious half-profile.
