Welll, it's been a wet week, but I have finished several paintings I've been working on. I am still working on the crow series. I hope you like them! The one above I call "Through the Foliage--the Crow". It is mixed media on 140 lb watercolor paper, 15 x 11 inches, predominantly in watercolor and watercolor pencil, with acrylic media for added texture.
The following on is called "Here's Looking at You--the Crow". Same size and media as the one above.

Hey there! Just finished this today, and I am happy with the result. It is a painting of my son, Andrew, sitting under a tree with his Ipod.
I took this pic on Easter Monday at the same park where I took the pics of the crows. Andrew took a time out from kite flying. I loved the way the light was coming through the trees, just had to take the picture!
It is not too often we get weather like we had that day here Cape Breton in April. The weather made up for it today, though, cold and snow :-(

I've always loved crows. Some people find them to be a bit of a nuisance, you know, when they are sifting through garbage or making a racket. Personally, I find them beautiful with their slick, black feathers. They are always around, here in Sydney...everywhere you go, you can pretty well spot a crow.
One crow sorrow,
Two crows joy,
Three crows a letter,
Four crows a boy...
Five crows silver,
Six crows gold,
If I see one, I always look for another, just in case its true, you know, about the sorrow.
So, there were five crows when I took this picture, but I only painted one so far!Hope you like it! Let me know what you think!
On Easter Monday, my mom, my two sons and I went out to the local park to fly a kite. I took some great shots and hope to get them on to watercolor paper this week.
Today is my first day painting in a long time. Check back soon for the results!
