I actually had an "owl" piece almost ready before this challenge was issued! It includes my own watercolor sketch of a lady with red flowers. Here it is, on my blog.

Oh my! What an honor to win a prize just for playing along each week. I am thrilled. Now I'm off to figure out how to make an owl, since this is something I've never even considered making. Bleubeard and I thank everyone at IA.

I created this owl before I went out of town, but knew I wouldn't be back before now to link it. Here is my entry:

Thank you for another fun challenge!

Felicia Kramer said...

Well, I surprised myself with this one. I wasn't initially inspired by the theme, and I'm not a huge fan of Halloween. However, look what happened when I started playing ...

I love the different owl pictures. I love owls and watch them 24/7. Their little owlets are adorable and it's so fascinating that each species and within the species are so different. Whooo knew. Blessings, Janet
