Prolonged studio time has been abbreviated as I waited for this nasty virus to disappear.  But for the last week, I've been doing short stints on this new piece.
It was inspired by a piece of recently ice-dyed felted wool.  I loved the results and almost immediately imagined how a full moon would help enhance the night sky.  I decided to marry the background with silhouette images, which have been a favorite subject of mine lately.  A lone hoot owl oversees the scene.

The red owl is the perfect counter balance to the moon and provides an unexpected focal point. Lovely.

Back in the saddle - and it must feel great! I love that moon fabric and the whole piece is great. Night time landscapes can be tricky to pull off but you've done it so well here. Success! Onward!!!
