I've been painting lately

I haven't done much in the craft world this year, though when inspiration strikes I've been painting lately. Mostly on small canvases, just for the joy of creating. Yesterday I went to a friend's house and saw her little girl's owl themed room. These friends are very near and dear to my heart, so last night I went to the craft room and started painting a little owl scene while I prayed for her little girl. I started with the background tree and owl body and when I went to bed, it looked something like this:

This morning I finished it and now am waiting for it to dry so I can write my prayer for her on the back of the canvas. Here's the finished product!

I don't remember exactly what the owls in her room look like or exactly what colors they are, but my hope is that this little painting will make them smile all the same and they will know how loved they are.
