Night Wings
ORIGINAL OIL by Linda Besse - 11" X 8"

The concept for this painting started with the frame. My framer had a stick of this and to me it looked like barn owl heads. I knew I had to use it for a barn owl painting. For extra drama, I decided to make the piece a painting within a painting, painting a border with its shadow to match the frame. Since the subject was a barn owl, it had to be a night scene.
