The Raven has Taken Flight


THE LOOKOUT, acrylic, 12×12 inches
This painting began as a blue/gold/b/w limited palette piece.  As I looked at what I thought was the finished painting, for some reason I felt it needed something…my first instinct being the Raven atop the fence post.  WHAT????   I have never placed a feathered creature anywhere in a painting or a quilt.  Is this the start of something new?  

He has flown off to a new home to be a companion to another Raven…hope he had a good flight….from the studio


    1. I have never done animal or human form in any of my artwork. Maybe my experiment with the limited palette has left room for a new element to creep in. Sue

  1. I LOVE this! The bird drew me right in and I think was the perfect add to your piece. Not sure if you are aware that Draw A Bird Day is April 8! We celebrate it every year (well, and every month on the eighth too) and people contribute their bird art. Kerfe & Nina at Method Two Madness are hosting it this go-round, and we would love to have you join us! If you’re interested, post a link to this or any other post with bird art below their post on April 8. Kerfe will do the roundup a few days later with a link to everyone’s work! Here is their site, if you’re interested:

    1. Laura,
      Thank you for the information and for your enthusiastic accolades. The painting is acrylic on canvas. From the response I have gotten, I think there are more birds in my future! Sue
