This is a new painting, watercolor & gouache, that gives a nod to the ever wonderful crow and to a pattern that I designed a while back. I've been thinking for a while about incorporating my patterns into some of my paintings. I'm never sure how things will work and I have already destroyed one painting that I did with a pattern -- an utter disaster. The blue birds were promising but somehow the rest got away from me. That's okay. I've had many casualties and I may resurrect the blue birds someday. Anyway, the pattern I referenced in Fritillarias & Crow is shown below.
This painting measures 11 x 14 inches. Ta-da! Twice as large as my usual work. The painting itself and prints of the image are available in my Etsy shop.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating today. I'll spend mine with my family, doing all the things we usually do: taking a hike, playing some games, eating a little too much, watching a movie.
A little gift for all of you -- a code for 20% off any purchase in my shop.
It's good until December 1st.
