About four months ago I made two mosaics inspired by owls in John James Audubon’s Birds of America, using ceramic tiles made by Cinca.  I embellished them with patterns and dots and color.   The palette is more subtle and subdued than what I usually use in my paintings, and I made one of the owls from the warmer colors and one from the cooler colors.  This is the red owl, inspired by the watercolor of the Great Gray Owl below.   So now there’s an owl. In my next post I’ll  share my sketches for the pussy-cat.
