Crow Painting on Copper

5x7 crow oil painting on copper SOLD!!

Yesterday I put peanuts out for the Blue Jays as I do every day. We have wonderful birds and deer and all manner of wildlife here in this lovely corner of the earth where I am so fortunate to live. There were many crows wandering , some would say skulking about the area. The little Jays swooped down to weigh and take a peanut and all of a sudden a huge swish and down flew the crows!! It was an exciting moment, my back door being open I edged my way back in the house. Of course the Jays vanished and the crows just took over the pile of peanuts! Big flapping sounds of wings and caw sounds and amazingly I was so close. Some were timid to my presence but most cared less!! They had their sights on those peanuts!
They were huge and they were beautiful, with their shiny black feathers, just beautiful!
My sister Julie and Iwere talking about my incredible experience and she said "paint a crow on copper!! " So here it is, Crow on Copper!

I like the way you captured the crow in movement - he looks so alive!
