wise old owl


Wish I took this advice more often....................just when you think you are a good listener, you find yourself interrupting just to say your piece (or is it just me?)

Mr. Owl was so fun to paint!!!!!!

I feel like I may be unconsciously copying another artist on this one- an owl + this quote. Seems like something the Things With Wings ladies would do..............sorry if I did- I either saw this somewhere or saw it in my brain- hard to tell.

Linking to Today's Creative Blog ....it's like show & tell for grown-ups :)

Sara...this is my favorite yet...the owl, the saying...I PUFFY HEART it! :) And...I think your little owl lives outside our window. We love to hear it's hoot hoot, but our little kitty thinks she's going to be dinner! :)

Oh LOVE LOVE LOVE! My late great Granny Jones loved owls and I can only think this might have been a favorite had she ever laid eyes on it! And she was a wise owl...teaching in a one room school house back in the day and putting herself through college via providing crops for the cafeteria.

LOVE this, don't worry, I feel that way about you sometimes, like I'm copying, I hope you never feel that way and take it as a compliment that someone else is inspired by what you do - cause I AM EVERY DAY!!!

So cute! I love owls. And I always feel like I'm either interrupting or not listening because I'm already planning my response. I need to try and be better about that.
