Screech Owl #30

It has been ten days since I posted and this isn't really a painting, but it is a work of art.

This month was already way too busy and then a week ago Monday Dale didn't do well on his annual electrocardiogram. That triggered more tests and finally a quick trip to the emergency room on Sunday. They hung onto him and Monday he got a pacemaker. Home today. He'll soon be just fine.

Meanwhile I had this little owl started. It still needed several hours of inking and was just the right project to work on during all the nervous waiting.

Inked in a Canson 70# spiral bound 'drawing book.' Great paper for ink, but does not take water at all well. Fortunately I'd already discovered the paper wasn't water friendly before I started this project.

I love this sleepy little guy. I admire the variety of pen textures you created!

Hi Elva,
Sorry to hear of Dale's difficulties! Glad he is on the up-tick!

The detailed pen work on this sleepy fellow is quite nice!

...another amazing piece. I love him. Hope Dale continues to improve. It's been a scary time for you both.
