Artist's description:

(ORIGINAL) 18 X 24 Colored Pencil on spray paint treated paper

I decided to draw a picture of the Barred owl because it is a special animal to me and tends to show up at important times in my life. Interesting enough, I had found bared owl feathers in the woods (both the a tail feather and a wing feather). They sat on my work table the entire time that I worked on this piece. I was able to capture some unique features and details of the Barred owl because of this. Furthermore, during the fall, I can look out of my window to see the trees but also, I go out to the woods and collect leaves and branches to bring back rather then working strictly from pictures.

I entered this work into a competition to get into the Minnesota State Fair. This is the largest juried show in Minnesota and I am told people try for years to get in. I was visiting a small art fair near our home town and a lady told me about the competition. It was free to enter so I figured I might as well try. I entered this piece on the last day available and made it through 3 rounds of judging. Flight in Fall ended up winning a cash award at the Fair (Earthkeepers Award).
