This painting is still not done but since I have been working on this Barn Owl for over a month I thought I would give this handsome dude his first debut.
The story goes like this: This huge owl decided to make a large mesquite in our backyard his forever home. His major pastime is looking directly into our kitchen at our two small wire haired terriers when they bark at him from the window. I do not hav
e to guess what he is thinking so let the games begin. This happens at least 2-3 times a week and since he clearly is stalking them I have taken the liberty of photographing this big guy at every opportunity. He doesn't seem to mind and at times appears amused.
The pups are safe because we built a covered "bano" off of our bedroom with a doggie door entrance. I would love to brag about their intelligence and bilingual skills but I can not. The word potty only works for them going into the pool side of our yard so what better idea than to change to Spanish to get them to use their newly protected potty space. It works and people are very impressed.
