ACEO 3.5 x 2.5 inches, original acrylic. The worse the weather the more ravens my food tends to attract. But they do scare off the smaller birds...even the starlings who usually appear in great numbers..
This recent snow really upset the ravens. They don't like landing in powder, but did ok on the street where the cars had driven. This morning they got a good breakfast of trout bones & fins. This is another ACEO 3.5 x 2.5 inch acrylic.
I have never figured out whether these are ravens, crows, or blackbirds. A good title would be "Blackbird With Blueberry". They are ravenous (raven?) eaters & are particulary carnivorous. AND they are agressive. I feed them peanuts every day with my morning coffee. ACEO 2.5 x 3.5 inches acrylic. They leave the coffee alone, but do like the peanuts!
This 22x28" pastel was drawn from a quick photo I took very close to the Wyoming-Montana border. It was quite challenging to successfully render these extreme value variables in complementary colors. This won Best of Show at the Western Spirit Show in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This is framed in a gold/copper massive frame with museum board as a matting.
I thought I would make some ACEO cards with a left over piece of museum board. The cards are only 2.5" x 3.5". I am not used to painting this small, but it is rather fun. I hear that some people actually trade these with one another just like the old baseball cards.
This small house originally faced Railroad Street and although the entryway was changed, the address remained the same. The 2 sides of the roof were at different levels and the gable over the addition to the porch a bit swayed, but the home was charming.
