*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well!
It has went back to normal temperatures here, after our rain storm. I just wish the rain kept going, because it's all dry again!

I have to admit, drawing my crows have consumed me! LOL! Not saying that I will never go back to painting, but for right now, I'm really enjoying this! The paper I'm using, I can paint on it too, so sometimes around the beak and eyes, I'm using acrylic paint. It's been a lot of fun creating the designs.

I've finished 3 more! You'll notice, some I have used the same names. I didn't think that mattered, because the images are different.

The first two are, "I Am All Things Possible"

My first baby crow drawing! (6" x 8")

(9" x 12")

"The Answers Are Within" (9" x 12")
Hope you enjoyed them, as much as I have been creating them!

Big Hugs 😀

Hi Everyone 😀
Hope you're all well!
Thank you for the great comments on my last post! I bought some new black ink pens. When I feel the urge, there might be more drawings! I actually was thinking of doing a series of "I Am All Things Possible". I will see where my pens take me!

Do you remember this painting?
Well, not that I didn't like the painting anymore, but I just had an idea, so I went for it. Here are some progress pictures! (lots of pictures)

Finished painting- "You Are The Gift" (10" x 20" canvas)
"Close Up"

Big Hugs 😀

Hi Everyone
Hope you're all doing well.
These past few days, I was thinking too much! You know what I mean? When you start doubting yourself?
I was editing again, putting my art on merchandise and I was just tired of doing it. It's fun seeing your art take life in other ways, but I would rather be painting!

So, I stopped and actually finished a painting, but when I looked at the painting, I didn't like it.

Then my mind started to take over! Thinking, maybe I should do something else? Should I keep going with my crows? ( Other things were going on at this time and it was leading me to think this way. Isn't it funny how something totally different, can affect you?)

I had a pad of paper, thick paper, that I bought ages ago. I said to myself, calm down and took some deep breaths. When I paint, I really don't "plan". I just start to paint. If I draw first, it's just for an idea. You probably wouldn't even know what I drew! LOL!

But, when I looked at this paper, I thought, why not draw one of my crows, using a thin black ink pen. I went for it.
It was freeing. You can't "cover" up anything or "erase" anything. And, I wasn't thinking!
Finished Piece- "I Am All Things Possible"
Who knows, I might do more?
Guess what? The next morning, I woke up to having sold 2 paintings, to a new customer! Grateful! I guess I'm suppose to keep creating my crows! 😃
Truly, deep down in my soul, I do love my crows. I don't know if I could ever stop creating them.
Lesson learned *never stop listening to your soul/heart*.

Big Hugs!
