The Owl Journal and Feature So here's the thing....I watched The Fourth Kind a while back and ever since then have been a little freaked out about owls. I loved owls....until this movie. Now I am seriously suspicious of them and have my doubts about whether or not they actually did evolve on this planet or are they "visitors"?The Owl Journal and Feature by Mattsma
So, for funzies I thought I would do a little feature on the beautiful artwork done by our very own deviants who probably have no clue that owls are aliens and apparently can "smile". Still....amazing artwork!
It's time once again for our local art council's Beaux Arts Ball and once again I've donated my time to make five masks for the Ball. unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures I'll correct this though and post some. In the meantime, please support local arts and crafts whenever you can. When you really look around you'd be amazed at the number of art openings, local theater productions, workshops and craft fairs going on.

When researching the proper way to sanitize bird feathers I came upon a lot of information - some of it good, some of it not so good and some of it just plain confusing. I have summarized the most useful info here in a blog on the subject: daragallery.wordpress.com/2013…
