Instant Ancestors

Sharing an owl piece I worked on this week, using old ledger paper, handmade paper and an owl from a large decorative paper from Italy. All blended together with natural beeswax. (I love working with beeswax!)
This shows the layers a bit... you can see the ledger paper behind the owl. I "framed" the owl with the handmade paper.

At first I thought I was done. Now I'm thinking it might need something else... the edges seem too sharp. Hmmm... What do you think?

Sharing with Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.

Reflections - Mallards

Took advantage of a recent sunny day and went for a walk at Scudder Pond. 
 This is a Mallard Duck pair caught with the rippled reflection of the spent cattails on the water. 
(female is preening in foreground right - she ducked her head just as I shot).

This shot is just prior to the one above... they don't hold still and wait for the silly human trying to take photos. :)
