I Want to Hold a Crow Amongst the Birches



I just finished two new paintings. I am kind of experimenting with some new styles. "I Want to Hold a Crow Amongst the Birches" is something I would love to do. I think crows are so majestic, and I would like to know what it would be like to hold one. Although there aren't many Birch trees where I live, I think they always have a fairy tale quality to them and wish I could sit in a grove of them. This is a big 11"X14" canvas and it looks wonderful in an antique gold frame.




"Flying" has three girls getting ready to soar. It is my attempt at something a little more abstract. This is a large 16"X20" canvas. Both of these will be listed on Ebay soon. Have a wonderful week!

Seeing that sturdy crow makes me want to hold one even more.

I always like to hear the crows cawing in the distance. In VA every morning when I took Baron out the crows would be flying through the woods cawing. It was a nice way to great the day. Birch trees are so beautiful, their bark is different from other trees and makes them stand out in a forest! I like both paintings. It's fun to try new styles, the girls dancing across the field is simple but full of energy. I like the multimedia effect with the words from an old book for their dresses. Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
