5x7 inches, acrylic and collage
This is really fun. I've been reading about ravens in an interesting nonfiction book by Bernd Heinrich called The Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures With Wolf-Birds. I've been looking at smart and talkative ravens on YouTube, and I've been painting the big black birds on scraps of mat board.
These little mixed media studies are designed to help me decide what to do with a 2x4 foot canvas the owner of Raven's Wish Framing and Gallery gave me. This canvas is a radical departure. I have a small studio, and a small house, so I tend to work small. I was tickled today when I took her this last study to learn that someone had already bought the other two. She has recently reopened at her new location in downtown Janesville, and is still unpacking and arranging her store. I look forward to getting going on the large work for her new showroom.
