A Wise Old Owl

A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird? 

Why, indeed.


Today's artwork is a pencil drawing of the Australian Sooty Owl.  Her name is Sooty-Hoot-Hoot! (Shh! for short.)

Shh! will be the star attraction in my first oil painting which I tentatively started in Ms Kathy's art-class last week.  I figured it would be wise to determine that I could actually draw an owl before I try to paint one.  I'm quite pleased with how this first drawing has worked, so I'm thinking that the actual painting process will be a real hoot.

Hope you enjoyed today's offering.  Hopefully by the time I get around to presenting the finished oil painting, you all won't be 'owling in pain by my various owl renderings over the next little while.

See you soon! :-)

(<Tee-hee> Oh, how I love a really bad pun!)
