one woman's view into a world of creativity

ΚΚΓ Owl

A while back a friend, who is a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, requested a piece of art from me.  The owl is her sorority’s animal, so I decided to do a painting of the elegant barn owl, tyto alba.  Other important symbols etc. of ΚΚΓ include the color blue,  fleur-de-lis/irises, keys, and sapphires.  You can see how I incorporated these into the final acrylic painting.  I spent about three days actually working on the piece.  I still might make a few minor touch-ups, but otherwise it is finished.

*Update* I decided the composition still needed something to balance out the bottom right corner.  I’ll be adding the silhouette of some pine trees soon.


(UPDATE: I think it’s pertinent to say I’m now a proud member of Kappa Kappa Gamma)
