I took this picture of an owl when my husband and I were in Alaska a few years ago. His intense stare has always enthralled me. I used Photoshop filters to alter the picture of the owl. I found a yellow fabric in my stash that matched the yellow of his eyes, to help highlight the eyes. I used browns as the frame so as not to take away the intensity of the eyes. As shown by the close up, the owl is heavily quilted except for the eyes and the beak. I have always wanted to do something with this photo and really enjoyed making this quilt. I have several other ideas for eyes but decided on this one. I may continue with this theme for a while. I truly enjoyed this challenge!
