Darkness below her, and deep blues closing in around her.  Dull grey surroundings closing in.

Blue Rain Crow

Watercolor on Arches 140# coldpress paper

15 x 22 inches

Think I'll just draw in the crow in graphite, pale and almost disappearing.

you know how I feek about your wonderful birds-you always convey their 'personality'!

I like the dreamlike quality to this one and the previous crow...I feel like the birds are static and the background is going at warp speed - like they are cawing out a message or warning. The ambiguity makes for many different readings.

As an aside, I have been reading a collection of Neruda's odes lately and came across his 'Ode to bees' it made me think of you. I wondered if you were familiar with it? There is some lovely imagery within it.

Best wishes.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner - I just don't get on the blog as much anymore to comment but I stlll watch what you are doing and am glad you all are more productive than I am right now :). Nothing serious - migraines are gone - election is over - just got out of the habit, I guess.
