Our Baby Owls

These cute guys are this year's batch of owlets who lived in our big walnut tree until they fledged and went their separate ways.  They were with us for several noisy, screechy months.  Sometimes I would go out on the porch with a flashlight, and this one night all six were in a row, so I snapped a picture.  In the photo rather than having "red-eye", they had neon rainbow eyes, and I tried to capture that in this painting.
