I've been slow getting back into the swing of things after my last vacation, but finally got moving again.
Every year in my art group's Dec. show, we set up a bare-branched tree that gets covered in a variety of artist ornaments. It's one of my favorite things in our show, and I love to participate. In the past years I've made houses, birds, and hearts. This year after collecting many pictures of owls out of catalogs and seeing these and these which I love, I decided to play with my own.
