I was inspired to create this mixed media piece after reading about a little girl in Seattle who fed crows in her backyard and they began to bring her small trinkets. Read more about her story here. Thanks to you, Gabi Mann, you are a gift!

Title "It's Only Misting" 8"x 10" $125.
Another set of crows in the series of weather related crows. I hope to complete 2 more to make it a dozen. My grandkids are here now are visiting from Los Angeles; so painting will have to wait while I get to enjoy their company. Part of the process in creating the pieces are to collage the one side. Many times I see a certain image in a magazine and that will get me started, but finding other elements to complete the collage may take some rummaging through all my magazines to find what I feel works and balances with the original image. I paint all the crows from photos I have taken and recently bought a new camera with a 35x zoom lens because they are such flighty birds and take off as soon as I get any where near them. These two are 8"x 10" on cradled 3/4 inch boards.
Title "Sunshine on a Cloudy Day" 8"x8" $100.
Title "Cloudy Day Chasing The Sun Away" 8"x8" $100.
Here in Portland we have many cloudy days, but many times on those cloudy days we get what the weather men call sunbreaks through out the day. So as part of my "Rain Bird" series I have included "Sun break Birds". 8" x8" on 3/4 inch Cradle Board
