I just finished this piece... I really like it, but want your honest thoughts and opinions.

EDIT: I finished my second piece. It was done during a very painful time recently, when my muse went psychotic.....

Would like to see hints of color in the moon (http://www.users.bigpond.com/ullart/images/Ullas_mopoke_Moon.jpg)and sky (bit of blue in it, especially around stars? (http://www.eso.org/projects/owl/images/General/HII_regions.gif)) and while everything does not have to be centered, I could stand to see a bit more of the owl.

Nice try. I know painting isn't always as easy as it looks.

No, it is not.

This is actually my first original painting like this. Anything else (painting wise) that I have done was more of a reproduction of another work, so I had a good feel of what kinds of coloration to ues. This one was strictly from my mind's eye - with the exception of looking at a picture of a screech owl to get a feel of what they look like.

But thanks for the suggestions. I will certainly put them to good use.

It's looks great. The eyes stick right out and look at you.
