Owl Be There

Title:  Owl Be There
Medium: Acrylic on panel
Size: 6x6 inches
Genre: Animals

I wanted to portray some magic in this little owl study-- hence the purple, as well as focus on the patterns in its feathers. To echo that, I put some patterning in the sky. This little fellow has been entered into the "Patterns" challenge at Daily Paintworks.

I love bottles and secret messages too, so here's another bottle with a message in it. The seashell, BTW is a murex.

Message in a Bottle

Title: Message in a Bottle
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 12 x 12 inches
Genre: Magic Realism, Fantasy

The fish are mystified at the writing on the message in the bottle. Little do they know it's only a game.
Note on the colors: I couldn't get this to scan the color accurately; the message in the original painting is more golden than orange. Cadmium orange does strange things on the scanner.
