The Raven

10" x 10" oil on cradled birch

I've always wanted to paint birds! I used to photograph them quite often so I have a lot of resources. I was so inspired by other bird and wildlife artist at the Celebration of Fine Art this year, I knew I had to finally give it a try. Here is one of my larger ones that I've recently finished. 

This was painted from a photo that was taken in Tucson, AZ many years ago. We visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. I would highly recommend it! I would love to visit again some time.
