Owl Boat.



This is my first finished painting on wood (sort of) and it took a lot longer than I had planned. It's A3 (kind of) and I based it on the story of a bird who lives all alone and has no friends. I made him a businessman and I don't know what happened...I thought I'd give him a happy ending and sent him away in the boat. I had planned to add another bird standing on his shoulder, but I really don't know whether to add it in or not now. I'm not really happy with out it turned out and the thing is, as I've learned bitterly, it can always be worse....hmmmnnn
