See It, Say It Saturday on ZNE-My response

One of our challenges as being a designer on ZNE is to create art in response to someone else's work. Well this week its my own :) Its My "Crowmatic" piece from about a year ago (on the bottom). Its actually one of my favorite pieces so it was fun to create a sort of "Sequel" to it.
The piece I created for this is "Monocrowmatic" and made of all tones of blue. What a challenge it was to create a piece in all one color! I am really happy with how it turned out! It is 6x12 on canvas.
I used acrylics, handpainted and handmade papers as well as an old ledger page on this.
On one of the papers that was plain dark blue , it just needed something so I used a circle stamp from Inkastamps to add something to it-it worked out perfect!

Such an astounding piece! You have captured that hint of a underlying darkness with the look in the crows eyes and yet the overall pieces still has a calmness to it with the peaceful coloring. A very difficult mixture to attain … bravo!

Hey Kristy! I'm waaaaaaaaaaaay behind in my blog visiting (sick child) and I am just now visiting everyone's See It Say It projects. The blue response is just beautiful; moody and dramatic feeling - and what a pair! Really great work!
