A Gathering of Crows: solo show

Art Prints
I just hung a new show of paintings and drawings that I completed at the Vermont Studio Center residency. The show is called A Gathering of Crows and celebrates the crow both in myth and nature.

The piece pictured here is called Crow's Fall (30 x 40", acrylic on canvas) Many cultures around the world have stories about how the crow became black. The title of the painting comes from the poem Crow's Fall by Ted Hughes.

The artwork is currently hanging at the Sherrill-Kenwood Free Library, 543 Sherrill Rd, Sherrill, NY 13461.

A Gathering of Crows
One crow for sorrow,
Two crows for joy,
Three crows for a girl,
Four crows for a boy,
Five crows for silver,
Six crows for gold,
Seven crows for a secret never to be told;
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a time of joyous bliss.

If you are in the area, I hope you will stop by and visit the crows!
