I thought I had more photos of this in its metamorphosis. Sometimes I take pictures because it helps me see it from a different perspective while I'm working on it. I think in this case I was working on so many different things, and being sick and tending to a sick child, I kind of lost the thread. So in three stills, here's the thread of Owl Owl. Personally I think I need to lose a lot of the pink. So many of my bigger pieces go through an incredibly helpless, unsave-able, butt-ugly phase, so I haven't lost all hope for this one yet. I do like a lot of the humor that has crept up inside. Collage, acrylics, ink, masks, caran d'ache sticks on 9 3/4 x 14 acrylic paper.
Despite being a morning with no alarm, I woke at 5:12 and was unable to go back to sleep. I tried for about an hour, then gave up. I have been on my feet since then with the exception of a bit of time to eat my three meals. And going steadily. So I'm quite tired now. Hopefully tomorrow will be a morning when both Riley and I sleep in a bit. He was quite unlike himself today, rather annoying at times AND has a lymph node poking out of his collar bone area which is rather painful. I'm hoping he's just fighting a common virus and not something that is going to put a cramp in our upcoming vacation, or - worse.
