The Crow and the Owl

Hello everyone,
I'm updating this post that I'd previously done, so that I can enter it in the Artist's Play Room at Just Add Water, Silly. This wonderful blog belongs to Jennifer Mcclean and I've just recently discovered it. I'm loving her weekly theme artist challenges! This week's theme is Thanksgiving. Neither of these paintings are really "Thanksgiving" themed...more so autumn. So, instead of a turkey - I have a crow and an owl!

 Most of my paintings have a nature/animals theme, and some are more whimsical than others. This first one is "Crow at Sunset" on an 8x10 canvas board using acrylics. Jennifer had a sunset theme a couple of weeks ago and this would have been perfect - however that was before I discovered her blog, so she kindly said I could add it to a current challenge to share with everyone.


 
...and this is "Baby Owl with Pumpkin," painted with acrylics on a 10x10 board. I'm having so much fun painting owls lately! This one just landed in a pumpkin patch. I hope he finds his way back home! :)  
 


 
 Next, I'll be painting a more appropriate "Thanksgiving" painting to add to the challenge. This keeps me on my toes and helps keep the creativity flowing.
 
So, until next time, everyone have a good Sunday!
Cindy

Cindy, your paintings are incredible!

Do you sell them or just tease us?

Can't believe this weather either - was in the garden this morning, but right now at 1:30am it is starting to sprinkle.

Poor Romeo, and poor husband trying to give him pills and goo for the eye and liquid antiobiotics, what an ordeal.

when we resuced him he had that same eye pretty bad and it never really recovered his sight well but he's been healthy up till scratching this - how we have NO idea he stays inside at all times - but it looks to me like he is more blind in it now, if that makes sense - used to be a little white but it is white now.

It could also be the eye goo he has in it but I just don't know and don't like the looks of it.

Poor boy!

Tell Buster and the gang how much he appreciates their concerns.

Meow and kitty hugs.

Cindy, all such sweet paintings. Lovely owl ! Can see the stunning fall views. Changing color of nature is pretty from green to gold to falling.

Love the owl Cindy. Our weather has been fairly warm, but foggy and drizzly. It is supposed to turn really cold in the next couple of days. Fall colors are done here.

Daisy said...

Your paintings are cute, Cindy! The fall leaves have been so pretty this year, haven't they? Ours are coming down really fast though. The rain we had the last couple of days has knocked a lot of the leaves to the ground.

Merlesworld said...

I do like your owl he is very sweet, I think your crow is well painted but I don't like crows when you see them around here all the other birds are not to be seen.

Visiting from the APR - wonderful paintings - your owl is very cute :0) Mo

Jennifer McLean said...

Such a sweet owl, you captured the large eyes beautifully. But then I like your crow too, my aunt is a fabulous artist and she has done a series of clay crows that are to die for. your crow reminds me of those. Love the background color too!

Gloria said...

Wow! You know I love crows and I love yours with the sunset. The owls eyes with all the white coming out is great, love him. Thank you for your comments on my last two posts! Have a good week...I guess I had better figure out a Thanksgiving theme!

Linda Brightwingsofsummer said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

The crow and sunset are fantastic too.

Happy Thanksgiving
