The owl's change of feathers and some hearts

A leopard may not be able to change his spots, but an owl can change his plumage. I very carefully gave the owl a wash of brown paint, then a dry brushing of black/brown. He's no longer a snowy owl and now feels much more comfortable in his summery world.

These are two hearts I received from Lesa, our CQ for Newbies list mom. I love them both. The snowman one is so appropriate for my snowy environment right now, and the pink flower fairies have me looking forward to spring!

Two fun hearts! This is a pretty scene, too. The owl does look right, now. I love the tree. I looked at it close up the other day, but don't think I left a comment, as Paul was hurrying me up for something.

You are so brave to paint your little owl. I liked him as a snow owl also. Thanks for posting the hearts.

p.s. I have that same fabric that you've used for a background on the owl picture (g)
