And the Owl says "Who"
Given the fact that I love owls, I'm always surprised I've never made any. I've photographed them, and I've even done paintings of them, but I've never sculpted one. I decided that needed to change.
I have all of these owl images stored up in my mind: creepy owls, hippie owls (1960's/1970's), vintage owls, and simple silly ones.
It would appear the simple silly ones have won the day.
I spent Sunday molding, baking, painting and varnishing my own small flock of owls.
Each one is about as tall as a thimble.
Apparently I'm completely done with appendages. I'd made little wings for them, but even though they looked cute, I didn't add them. I preferred the sleek and round look they had without them. I just imagine them tucked close to body so you can't see their form.
My favourite thing about them is they all look up at you with those big eyes.
