WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER CROWS?

I haven't given up on the other crows...just wanted to start another. I'm not sure what it is about crows but I like them, like seeing them and like seeing paintings of them. So I'll be working on two crow paintings...or maybe I'll start a third? ha ha


So this is "Crow 2 Crow" and I don't know where it's going, I just know where it began...with artists tape and two crows and some splattering at the top that was fun (and maybe was just a way to release anxiety?).

On our way into the hospital yesterday morning for Jerry's heart testing, a single crow flew over and caw caw cawed at me - I took it as a sign that things would be okay. I think crows are messengers for me...so be looking for more crows (and finished crows) to come in the days ahead as I get back to painting.

Sending positive and healing thoughts to Jerry on the wings of crows. I think what I like about crows is their commitment to black, no doubt about their blackness and it is a shiny black.

Rhonda, remember we also serve who only sit and wait...and wait...and wait!

Good start. I like that background. I am sorry that your birthday was stressful so I am sending you a raincheck for a day to enjoy!

The lower right background is superb!
Wishing you and Jerry all the best.

I like your crows very much and the composition is great.
Happy Belated Birthday and healing thoughts for your husband.

Love the crows, Rhonda! CAn't wait to see more .... I hope both you and Jerry are de-stressing a bit.

This looks like an excellent beginning, Rhonda. It's wonderful when you somehow click or identify with a subject, animal or bird - I say go with it for all its worth!
Thoughts and best wishes coming your and Jerry's way...

Thanks a bunch, Susan (I'm using that comment = their commitment to black, so look for it in a painting someday!). Vicki, I'll take that raincheck :)
I'm glad you like it so far, Christiane, Barb, Deb and Cathy! I hope to pick up a brush someday soon.
