i started this months ago with a sharpie and tonight i finally got around to filling it in. i love the idea of putting something directly on the wall. it is so much more permanent than framed canvas in that it becomes part of the structure, but it is also very temporary since i rent. i guess the lesson here is enjoy what you have while you've got it. or maybe the lesson is that sean likes owls. either way i am really happy with the way it is coming together.
