Great grey owl in farmland / La chouette lapone dans les champs

In January 2005, many great grey owls made their way south into the region of Maniwaki, Quebec, in search of food. Late one afternoon, I spied one resting on a hydro line. When it finally decided to explore the fields, it stretched its large impressive wings and soared majestically. Acrylic, 16 x 20 inches.

En janvier 2005, plusieurs chouettes lapones voyagent du grand nord jusqu'à la région de Maniwaki (Québec) en quête de nourriture. En fin d'après-midi, j'ai trouvé une chouette perchée sur une ligne d'hydro. Quand elle s'est finalement décidée d'explorer les champs, elle a étiré ses grandes ailes impressionantes et s'est envolée majestueusement. Acrylique, 16 x 20 pouces.

Mike:
That main barn at centre right puzzles me. Does it extend all the way to the right edge of the painting or does it stop where the white vertical line on the roof starts?
Painting fine.
