Hi everyone. Hope your week is going well. I am really enjoying the nice weather we are having, even if it means my road is knee deep (not literally but close-smile) in mud.
I'm back with another page for Sheila's (online known as Orange Esmeralda) Single Flower challenge at Art Journal Journey.
The idea of a single flower lead me to draw flowers on several pages of my drawing journal. For this page, I went big.
The only non-drawn part is the stamped word Bloom I stamped below the flower.
There's not much to say except I used my Faber-Castell markers to both draw and color this page. I'm happy with my flower, but the one thing about my drawing that I am really amazed with is the black circle in the center. It surprisingly came out like a perfect circle. It pops in this photo too, although it is drawn on the page. Small things for small minds (I'm being my sarcastic self-ha-ha) as the cliche goes.
And can you guess what visitor I had from these horrible photos? It was exciting!
This bard owl was sitting and watching for prey that came up under the bird feeder at about 7:30 the other night. The dogs were barking like crazy, but the owl didn't seem to care. I tried getting a good photo, but between the distance, the darkness and the fact that I couldn't open the door for risk that the dogs ,who were extremely wound up , wouldn't stay, none of my photos came out.
I think Mr/Mrs Owl must be coming around frequently as of late because often Pete wakes up during the night and starts barking. When he starts to bark, Maddie rolls out of bed (she sleeps with us) and starts barking too. I never let them out during a bark fest because who knows what could be out there. My bet is there is good owl food under the feeders at night since so much seed falls onto the ground. and that must attract hungry mice and other small animals.
Thanks for visiting.
