Raven Series

Raven.1The gliding  shape of a raven evokes a sense of freedom and grace.  Known for their wily intelligence, ravens are attributed with prophecy.  Today in these times of quarantine and isolation, it seems prophetic that I focused on the raven’s essence of freedom and possibility as I began my Raven Series in early winter.  These images in pastel and watercolor arouse sensations of liberty and optimism through flight.  Art gives me the language to communicate my aspirations and dreams.  Through art I can soar high above this uncertain world.  (Pictured left: “Soar”     Pictured above:  “Winging It”   Both images–framed watercolors, 15″ x 12″  $175; image size 10″ x 7″

Raven.3

 

Like ravens- I, too, have an affinity for shine and glitz.  I pushed my final piece with mixed media, adding shiny gold acrylic and gel ink. Pictured right:  “Glide”   mixed water-media , framed 15″ x 12″  $175; image size 10″ x 7″

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

It’s been a busy December between art shows and workshops.  I have been focusing on holiday and winter themes while creating artwork and developing demos for my workshops.   Most recently we created holiday cards from small watercolors.  For those of you who have been following my blog and Facebook, here is the teaser I posted for the workshop, along with the completed painting, and a second painting with a slightly different composition, grouping a single ornament next to two ornaments
