A Little Owl (Athene noctua) Sketch Two & a Purple Calla Lily Flower Website Update...



Here is a sketch of a Little Owl (Athene noctua).  This is the favored owl of the Greek goddess Athena, also known as Minerva by the Romans.  Alex suggested that I might want my owl for my painting of Athens to be in more of an upright pose than the one I sketched before, he found this owl for me.  I like them both, but I think this may fit the mood of the piece a little more so than the first one...


I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

Intensity Original 5"x7" Painting, Open Edition 5"x7" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

Intensity is of a purple calla lily set against a very light grey sky.  Flowers are so beautiful to me, they remind me of my grandparents and their love of nature.  The style is a soft realism.  This piece available as an original, as prints, and Limited Edition ACEOs!  

Every week on Tuesday, I try to list a small original, some giclee art prints, and giclee LE ACEO prints at promotional prices. Visit here to see what I have available this week!

I like both of these pieces, but for some reason am drawn to your sweet owl. I didn't know about it's connection to Athene, so thank you for enlightening me. Blessings, my friend!
