April Fools!

Today is the 1st of April. If you went by our weather a few days thought it was June or July then it was back to maybe March or April. Whatever the weather today is the day to play jokes on friends and family. I am not going to play a joke on you but I am sure it will get a giggle or two out of my followers.
I am going to share my latest venture. I am currently taking a class by Junelle Jacobson called The Art of Wild Abandonment. So far I have drawn, not so successfully, some radishes that looked anything but and the owls I am going to share with you in a moment. I want to put a disclaimer here that I don't by any means usually draw. As a matter of fact I am usually the one with the stick figures even the dogs and cats. I use pictures or any other clip art I can find including mediums from my scrapbooking that does the 'drawing' for me. So this is really outside my comfort zone but did I have a blast doing it. So without further ado here are my funky owls.

And here are some close ups:

In the closeups you can see the added wings on some of them, three to be exact, that I really am not sure I care for too much but it was part of the lesson. It did add dimension so I might just fix one of them as it looks a little odd.

Our next lesson is a clothes line I think and once I am done with it I will post for you all to see.

Thanks for looking!
