The Night Owl, oil on canvas, 16"x16".  Sold.

This is a painting that I've been working on and off for the past few weeks.  Something about it wasn't working for the longest time.  I had a bird's nest in there at one point, a bird, a book, and possibly even a monkey too.  Nothing was quite connecting until I figured that it just needed a snail and my favourite owl figurine.  That seemed to pull it together.  I find that sometimes when a painting isn't working, it's best to set it aside for a while and eventually revisit it when you've calmed down from the rage and frustration that it has unleashed.  Boy, I think there may be some residual rage there.  Time now for some 'French Tea'.
