The Raven Series...
The paintings of the tree ravens: Clifford, Claude and Clarence were inspired by a pair of ravens living in a barn behind our house. Every evening at dusk they would fly in front of us as we walked past. They have been there for over a year and seem to just consider it a great place to live. We had hoped they would nest there and and we'd see babies - but not yet.
As I paint the ravens they each develop their own personality. I always paint the eye last so that it is the final stage of bringing them to life. This series has been one of my favorite while I experimented with different backgrounds for each bird.
"Questioning Clifford. He was the first. The background in this was fun to create movement. Clifford always looks like he's about to questions the viewer." - Deni
