The Barn Owl , a ghostly pale creature with dark eyes, is normally nocturnal. It bobs and weaves it's head in a curious manner. It's the most widely distributed species of owl in the world, and one of the most widespread of all species of birds. We came across this old truck while hiking, and I loved the way nature was working to reclaim it, and how the owl was checking it out for something to eat. In the painting I decided to give the head a tilt to mimic some of the curves of the truck.
