Facebook can be a vibrant place for inspiration, connection and showing off! As must be evident by now, I love painting birds and so I follow bird pages on Facebook. I have done a Hawaiian Bird Series whose merchandise is sold in the Hawaii Wildlife Center Gift Shop. I was wanting to expand the series and add the Pueo and lo and behold, I saw that Hawaiian Bird Photography by Mark Kamura had posted an invitation to artists to paint from his photos. I was granted permission, and this Pueo Hawaiian Owl watercolor is the result. Thank you Mark for allowing me to paint from such a wonderful photo. WOW!
Here is a good article written about the difference between a Pueo and barn owl.
