This is an original painting of a Pied Crow, painted on gallery wrapped canvas. The size is 12 inches high by 16 inches wide. The depth of the canvas is 1.5 inches. Crow was painted on top of an acrylic pour background. I used medium body and high flow acrylic paints, and the surface of the canvas is protected with a soft varnish.
Crows have coexisted with humans for centuries, playing a mystical role in legends and folklore. As a result, they are often misunderstood.
Crows are highly intelligent birds with the ability to communicate by translating thoughts through the use of beak and wing gestures. They also mimic other animals and even humans. Through their gift of communication, they remind us to use our voices wisely.
The Spirit of Crow is respectful of the earth, doing her part to recycle whenever possible by eating what she can scavenge. By doing so she asks us to remember that everything has a purpose.
Crow is a survivor and takes this role seriously but she is equally respected for her ability to enjoy life to the fullest.
Be mindful of the planet in which you inhabit; be aware of the words you choose for they tell the story of who you are. Be Like the Crow.
