Painting an Owl

Some of you may know already that I have been trying to paint some as a hobby. It's fun. I really enjoy it and it is a good way to relax. I don't get around to it much, but sometimes I'll get the nerve for it and spend my free time painting a picture. Kari suggested that I paint an owl for my next picture so a little bit before Thanksgiving this year I started drawing on a canvas a picture on an owl.
Well, today I finished it. It felt great! I am my own worst critic, but I figured I would show off my owl painting for everyone. Give me your best/worst critiques! I can take it.
I took pictures throughout the process just for the records:

We are so proud of your art work. We didn't know you were an artist as well as a musician. It is good to know our resources are expanding.

Impressive. It looks like an owl, and I like paintings that "look" like what they actually do in real life.

Very Impressive Ryan! You are very talented. We have one of your paintings hanging in our kitchen and really enjoy it.

Been checking back for updates on you and the expected little one.

Could you be at The Farm right now? We'll be there next weekend doing our prenatal visit.

Hope all is well with you and your growing family!
