Wise



I went for the cliche. I have always loved owls and I have never painted one before so I thought now would be as good a time as any. This style is a little different for me. I wanted to paint something without any shading, just flat blocks of color and patterns. (I've been re-reading The Art and Flair of Mary Blair). I'm still experimenting with colored papers and trying to work the paper's color into the design.
