“Community” reflects, in the language of crows, what it means for us to live in community, helping each other achieve the heights of our potential.  We can reach higher together.

The top crow has a treasure firmly clasped in his beak.  Is it something he was reaching for, or did he carry it with him to the top?

The friendly little crows are simply painted onto a background made of all manner of “found” papers and my own photos of industrial sorts of patterns.

You may remember being introduced to my stack of crows in my sketchbook…

As usual, it didn’t go exactly according to plan!

It is created right onto a cabinet door that I picked up at my local Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.  Makes a nice solid surface… and an instant frame!

The artwork measures 7 3/4 x 29 1/2 inches (without the “frame” which adds another 2 3/4 inches on each of the four sides).  Cost: $135.

  1. Not a fan of crows 🙂 … but this is fabulous! Love the reuse of the cabinet door and the artwork, well just stunning! Happy weekend,

  2. I absolutely love this! I’m rather fond of crows so was looking forward to seeing what might emerge from your crow sketch.
