painted owl

There sure has been a lot of owls around here, hasn’t there?  Well it is for good reason. We are reading Guardians of Ga’Hoole before bed and the boys are just totally obsessed with them! So, whenever I pop into a thrift store, I always look for owls.

I lucked out the other day and scored this little cutie.  We went back and forth on whether or not to paint him, but the paint won out and he was sprayed a glossy sky blue (which was the only color I have).  It seems that I’ve painted a lot of things this color. I just can’t help it–it’s a favorite.
