Owl Etching #1

This is going to take awhile to scratch all of those feathers on to this guy..,or girl :p

Actually went to college today, yay! and managed the whole day with a few doses of pain killers lol My neck is killing me tho from bending it to work on this. I zone out, not hearing the scratch scratch scratch on the plate and lose track of time when working on these. Its sort of like when working on pointillism, takes a long time to do but you don't actually realize how much time has past because you are so focused on working.

Looks wonderful, and focus is good. The etching process suits you very well. It is great to hear you're on the mend!

Looking great! I love that kind of focus. Impressed you have it on painkillers!

He/she looks beautiful!

This is TOTALLY off the top of my head and with no authority from anyone, but I work with a wildlife conservancy here in the States that is trying to raise awareness of the Monarch butterfly, whose numbers are declining rapidly. I wonder -- if you drew a butterfly and we sold it to raise money (and paid for your artwork, of course)...hmmm. Do you draw butterflies? Would you be interested? I guess that's where to start. :p If so, I'll talk to the president of the conservancy and ask her about auctioning off the picture and having the proceeds benefit Monarch conservation efforts. Sorry for the ramble, and it may not amount to anything. As I said, I'm just a volunteer, not someone who makes decisions, LOL.

thank you :)

I have drawn butterflies before, not for a while tho :) Would love to do it, probably not anything huge tho since it would cost a bit if it was huge to ship it to the states. don't have them here, but I do remember seeing a lot when I was younger back in Canada, and then growing up they became a lot rarer :/
