I was able to visit a Raptor's Rescue Facility this month and take dozens of reference photos for several paintings coming up this year.  I am especially happy with this Great Horned Owl.  The last time I had been out to visit him, (6 months ago) he was looking pretty beat up.  He had broken a wing and was brought in by a concerned rescuer.  He was refusing to eat and the odds were against him.  He is looking so much better now!  I love the 'looking down your nose' attitude he has and his startling ears.  I hope I can do him justice in my painting!
