What a Hoot

That's what I titled my piece. I was initially interested in the wood grain graphic that flowed across two small boards. I was intrigued by the similarities of wood grain and waves, and so chose to begin painting with hues of blue.

And then the knothole. Hmmm. I debated—a fish, a frog...no a wise owl. Missy was my creative coach for the piece and added her artistic touch  to Mr. Owl's eyes in particular.
