Found Owl
Watercolor 12"x9"
This painting has an interesting story. I found this Screech Owl near my car one morning and snuck back to the house to retrieve my camera. I took a few quick pictures and snuck closer, on my belly in the grass, until I was about 4 feet away, snapping shots as I got closer. I then realized it was dead. It must have been struck by a car near my house and fluttered down to rest beneath the Blue Spruce Tree near in the yard. I took it to the studio for a couple of sketches and did this watercolor in memory of it before giving it an honorable burial.
