Olga Owl

Remember:  “Impossible” means “I’m possible”.

Olga Owl – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

“My name is Olga Owl.  Whew… spring is finally here.  What I like best about spring is that I can finally get my beak and nails done.  I get sooooo tired of brown!  While I was at the salon, I got my eye feathers done in pink.  Do you like them?  I can’t decide.”

This little ATC went to Ai in Bangkok, Thailand.

You may not be able to see it, but there is a little jewel glued to Olga’s beak.  How fun is that?  Yesterday afternoon, I went to McAlester and practiced my crosswind landings.  What an experience!  The runway runs nearly north and south.  The wind was coming from the west.  It’s an adventure getting that plane on the ground, pointing straight down the center line of the runway.  I’ve been hesitant to practice these by myself, but bit the bullet yesterday and I’m glad I did.

Have a great weekend!  🙂

    I am slowly catching up on blogs.I love the bright colors you used…definitely makes life look better!

    I had to do a replacement blog for mine because all of a sudden I couldn’t post anything. It was such a pain to redo all the links and everything. Please come visit my new blog at http://watercolorsbyjoan2.blogspot.com

      Thanks, Joan! I found this in my spam file. I wonder what’s up with that? I’ll head over to the new blog and change the link on my blogroll. Sorry you had that trouble.

    This the cutest Olga owl I’ve ever seen. It would never occur to me to dress my owl in a parrot dress, but hey! that’s the beauty of creative license. It is spring and even owls want to be cheerful. Well done, Beth!
    Did Olga help land in a cross wind?

    I think that I’ll leave the flying with the owls, with jewels in their beaks. Cross winds don’t mean a thing with your feet planted firmly on the ground! But be safe those owls and you, that decide to take flight!

    Olga is so cheerful in all her Spring finery – Great!
    My daughter flew into Indy yesterday and said it was the worst landing she’d ever been through. They landed sideways – crab0like. Yikes! Glad you are safe!

      Thanks, Linda! That’s actually what we do… “crab” it in. But we are supposed to kick the rudder before touchdown, to straighten it up. Ouch! 🙂

    I would say that this owl is camouflaged well for sitting amongst the spring green of leaves. I would not spot him had you not painted him for us to view. The jewel? You go girl!
    Congrats on your landings!
