This is the process for creating the Raven painting. This particular background I had finished last week, allowing some drying time and inspiration! The raven is an important subject, not just to me but also my sister and my two daughters. My father loved birds. He especially enjoyed the raven or crow and felt there was a spiritual connection to him with these birds. When he passed away,
suddenly we began experiencing encounters with ravens, really unusual behavior for these birds. It still happens. It is comforting but occasionally annoying as it feels like he is lecturing! And it may just be our way of feeling like he is watching over us, kind of nice! This painting will be heading out the door next week for sale but in the meantime, I’m going to sit back and enjoy it!
