MY SWAP PAINTING TO FLORIDA

I drew Jim's name this time for my SWAP partner and my painting was mailed off to Florida. Since I'd been consistently flying with the crows, I did a small painting on gold gessoed watercolor paper, leaving the edges ragged and adding some words, etc. into the painting. It flew in to his house on March 17th and he has it at the framers right now getting the royal treatment :) I would normally paint something more traditional, but thought Jim would like something a bit different.

That's so original and fresh - I'm glad you went with one of your 'signature' pieces. You'll soon be known as the crow lady. ^_^.

Thanks, Gillian. Hmmm...not sure Crow Lady is such a good moniker but that's okay :) hee hee

I really like the gold contrasted with the crow. Great series!

Love this modern piece you did for Jim of one of your crows. This round the world swap club seems like fun.

Thanks, Vicki and Joan :) The SWAPs do travel around the world from India to Brazil and Great Britain, Canada, US and Australia and the Philippines!
