Paint Party Friday!

I held in my mind's eye the vision of an owl hunting on a heavy overcast late March day to later become a painting.
His shadow was what was what fascinated me the most, how it seemed to float along as a separate entity.
When the thaw comes in March the warm sun begins to melt the snow and this chases the field mice to the surface making mouse hunting an easy sport for the crafty owls!
It's Paint Party Friday , please visit.

  6. Laurie, You did a great job on your painting. I love seeing shadows of things in the air. I often see butterfly shadows on the porch in summer. Maybe the field mice is why the hawks are on the rise here again. There's been many reports of snowy owls around where my daughter moved. That girl is a birder and I am sure she will spot one. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
