The new crop of crow youngsters are noisy and busy.
I see them all over the neighborhood trying out their flying skills
and getting into trouble with the squirrels.
Since I like to paint what I know I used some of my photos of
my feathered neighbors as references for my latest paintings.
Morrigan is a goddess of Irish mythology and her companion
is a crow. A crow flying overhead could either cause fear
or courage in the hearts of warriors. This painting is
another one inspired by my crow, or corvus, neighbors. I like
to watch them walk across our lawn searching for a breakfast
of crumbs from a picnic or an unfortunate bug.
For the Virtual Paintout I submitted one more sketch for Latvia
called, "The House at the Bend in the Road." This month's
subject for the paintout is Thailand. I'm excited to
do a virtual Google Maps tour of that place for inspiration.
Just a reminder. You can see all the paintings I have for sale
