The funny thing about float-painting is that no matter how hard you may try, no two sides of a float will ever look the same. Okay- I suppose you could get them to look alike, but no one will ever compare them against each other as it rolls down the parade route. These two owls almost look like they could be different species. I did not notice while I painted these, but laughed when I saw these photos, because neither has a single tail feather hanging down past the branch he sits on. Well- those beads hooks attached below will be so laden with bling during the parade that I'm afraid it hardly matters!
