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 love the raven. I am partial to our winged friends, but I very much like his high perch!

  2. Nikki

    I have not seen anything animal like from you before but great job. I like it!

  3. This really does give another dimension to your artwork !! He seems to command attention from his lofty perch!

  4. 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:

  5. Also, can I ask what substrate you worked on here? I love everything about this piece!
