Counting Crows


Its been a while since I have done a crow themed canvas.........and I was in the mood to do one so I did :) The crows on this are transferred directly to the canvas. All underneath them is vintage ephemera that has been painted . I added a bit of handmade and lace paper for the final touch.

I have such an affinity for crows. This is lovely.

Fantastic piece! Love the balance between the larger crow on one side and the row of crows on the other. The colors are amazing too!

mmmm I love Crows too. We have a special relationship with them here. I posted about Ravens a while ago. I really like this piece. It is fantastic. We should start a Raven/Crow art swap.

Here's the link to the Raven post and a pic i took of one of our neighborhood ravens

I always love a crow theme but your background is really calling to me. Wonderfully layered and such a fantastic color palette.

Hi ,
Kristy, I wandered here from the transfer newslist, and boy do I love this raven piece! Anji, are you serious about a raven/crow swap of some sort? I'm up for it! It's neat that we are of differing media, that could be a hugely fun swap!
Here's some of my work, but alas, no ravens or crows! I once took on a spirit name of She-Who-Talks-To Crows!
