I am working on a painting of three burrowing owls. They live in the town of Rio Rancho, and I am fascinated by them. I thought of submitting this painting to a contest given by the Rio Rancho Art Association that involves images of the city, but I am sure the judges are thinking in terms of landscapes, not funny little ground owls!! Maybe I should submit it just cause it would stand out from the rest. :) Guess the first course of action is to finish the painting and see if it is good enough!
