"The Look" and last OWOH

A short post because I got tired of scrolling with all those other photos. Here I'm getting what we call in this house, "The Look". He's hot and tired from all the walking around and a little grouchy because the snack bag is in the car, but it's a good view of the gap:

I do have some much better shots of him from today, but this one is just so Riley-esque that it makes me laugh.

And I can't believe it but I think I've finished my second OWOH piece. Locuasia, this one is for you:

There is some great detail that this photo doesn't do justice to and I'm quite surprised how the two OWOH pieces ended up with a similar color scheme. They both started off so differently and under went so many changes. Collage, acrylic, ink, caran d'ache sticks, watercolor pencils and graphite on 140 lb. 5 x 7 watercolor paper. The paper held up amazingly well considering what I did to it, although I think I prefer working on the acrylic paper I've used recently on my chickens and what I am using for my Owl Owl.

Hello Kim,
Thank you very much for your comments, I really appreciate them!
The piece you did for me is absolutely beautiful! I love it and can't wait to receive it!!!
Thank you for your generosity.

The look! Usually reserved just for Mom - would they dare give it to anyone else and still be adored?

I've tagged you and also just realised to my horror that my feed reader isn't picking you pu properly and I've missed a whole bunch of posts....gotta go fix that NOW.

Love how your OWOH piece turned out. Priceless photo of Riley, hehe. Those butterflies are gorgeous - I wish we had something similar to go visit here.
