Owls have always fascinated me. We have a pair of what we call "hoot" owls that roost in the palm trees above our barn. To be correct, they are "Great Horned Owls." When we are out at night they fly over us. Occasionally, they roost on top of the telephone pole directly behind the barn. and hoot away. One night, crazy as this sounds, one was on top of our home's chimney. The hooting was echoing down into the house. It was so cool.
This owl is a combination of all my owl sightings and photos taken. The pine tree was photographed near our home in a canyon.
We love to hear them call out at night. Equally, we love to be under them as they fly overhead. We enjoy the sound of their wings flapping in the calm night air.
The painting is currently on exhibit in Southern California at the Santa Rosa Ecological Preserve and is for sale.
Thanks for taking a peek.
