“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!
And the full effect…
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.
