Painting, drawing, sculpture all give me such joy and pleasure. Playing in the arts feeds the soul!
Crow & Raven Cards
The crow and ravens showed up in my paintings for about a year and a half. The more I painted and learned about these intelligent, curious, funny, and communal birds; the more interesting they became. I've included a word on each card that came to me as I created the paintings.
I encourage you to explore the wealth of cultural legends, myths, documentaries, videos and stories about crows and ravens available in the library and on the internet. You are likely to find crow behavior is remarkably like our own.
The cards are available in the shop on this site for purchase.
Using Charles Bargue and Jean'Leon Gerome Drawing Course I did these sketches from the plates in their book still available today. An excellent way to practice and improve skills. Not only is the book an perfect self-teaching tool the drawings within provide inspiration for any art appreciator.
