One of the current themes I am working on concerns my interest in birds…Birds of all kinds, but I have a particular interest in Crows and Ravens. They are fascinating creatures..very smart and possess a lot of attitude.
I have done a number of paintings and drawings of crows and they are usually rendered in red against the night sky or a stormy atmosphere…Some of these works are quite large on Arches paper…60”-72” ….and they are sometimes just pinned or stapled to the wall. The reason for showing them in red as opposed to their normal, very handsome bluish-black, is strickly and abstract decision to highlight them agaist a dark ground. They look good red…they seem even more mysterious then they normally are.
There are a number of images on the site of this work and I would be interested in any comments.
