Owl About Meeting Me At Midnight? Three Aceos

Several years ago I contemplated opening a small shop.  I got so far into the planning that I wrote out many of the details.  One of the things that stuck with me was that I was going to have the word, "Owl" in the name of the shop.  Daydreaming and planning...but things happened and I didn't open the shop.  I threw away the paper with the list of details- along with my hope.  I later found that my husband had taken the plan out of the trash and saved it in his wallet.  He put it there since he knew I'd never find it!

So when Inspiration Avenue gave the Owl theme, I thought about that shop and wonder if...Anyway, here is my first ever attempt at painting an owl, so I've given you two.  These are aceos in acrylic.  They are taped onto a plastic/flexible chopping board sheet which I cut in half.  The card in the middle is leftover paint, haven't decided how I'll use that one.  The words were added in Picnik.  Click the image to see it larger.






Also, don't forget the party that Inspiration Avenue team members are throwing.
Go visit, and join in the fun!

I would say that was true love that your husband saved your dream all these years in his wallet. I'm so glad you joined the IA challenge this week. Missed your entry last week.

Both of these owls are adorable. I like how you paint, and I really like the one in the football gear. That one really made me smile. You make great art.

I love the owls. Cute 'story' that they portray. I am in suspense, why did you want "Owl" in the name of your shop. . . there must be some significance. Thanks for visiting my blog. Blessings, Janet

Your owl is lovely, and I love the story you shared with us. Sad that you couldn't fullfil your dream of your own shop, but it's sweet that your husband kept your plans. Thank you for sharing this with us today.
