I have been wanting to do a painting that included a raven. I am fascinated by them, although I remember a time in my life when I viewed them as sort of a nuisance. I lived and worked in the mountains above Denver at a school where they swarmed a dumpster on a daily basis. They would cause quite a ruckus, still very big and black and beautiful.
Thanks to Jenny deGroot on Flickr for allowing me to use a great photo she had of one there. I added the background from my head.
P.S. I finally upgraded my blog title ! SOLD - collection in Florida - thanks!It gave me fits, but I like the way it turned out.
