It was taken from my studies of a little owl family just down the road from my gallery at Thixendale. This juvenile spent its days either hiding under a fallen downn elm log or standing on this post and calling for food from its parents.
I've also painted this barn owl for the exhibition. I've called it Barn Owl at Burdale. Burdale is about 3 miles away from my gallery and one of my favourite places to watch barn owls. I saw this beauty hunting for several hours before it landed on this post right in front of me.
I'll post some more of my paintings tomorrow if I get chance! Hopefully it'll be busy in the gallery and I'll sell lots of paintings - wish my luck!
