Beautiful piece, Val. This is one of my favorites. I've been away from IF for a while due to my deadlines. With all of the new people on IF, it's nice to come back and see familiar work, like yours.

Dood! You and I must have started our blogs at the same time. Mine was October 2005 too!! Although, you have given yours much more tender loving care than I have. I need to 'water' my blog more often or it's gunna dry up.

Dood!

Hi,

Thanks for dropping by on my blog! You're a true artist I see. It's very different from what I do, but I really like this Halloween picture. See you around?

Lisa M Griffin said...

Wow this owl is really cool. His wings look like a Halloween mask and the addition of those big eyes make for a nice spooky feel. Great shadows in the background as well. Thanks for sharing.
