Athena Coin and Green Owl (detail)


Mr. Green Owl. Watercolor, 4" x 4" (detail)

This is similar to a reproduction Greek Athena coin bought when I was in high school.  Was looking for an inspiration for a different owl image and this fit the bill.  The olive leaves were appealing, as well as the giant eyes.  Got the teal/orange/green color scheme from a collage by Ruth Fiege.
