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

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Hi Everyone 😀
Hope you're all well!
We finally got a good amount of snow and it was easy for shovelling, because it was nice and fluffy.
This snow fall happened a few days ago and since then, we have been in a deep freeze. The nice part about this deep freeze, it has been sunny everyday!

I just finished a painting, I've been working on now for about 3 weeks.
Here are some progress pictures. There is a lot of photos. Hopefully you will be able to see the detail that was added in each one. Took me quite awhile to get the crows to look exactly the way I wanted them. (click on the pics to make them bigger)

And, finally, the finished painting. Which, I have to admit, I haven't decided the name yet. Either it's going to be "Big Crow Hugs" or "Crow Hugs".  (10" x 20" canvas)
Some close up detail.

My crows are changing again. I can see it and feel it in the last few paintings. 

Big Hugs 😃


  1. Oh Stacy this is beautiful, you can feel the emotion is this,, its lovely!!

  2. How I love your work. Seeing the details emerge was an amazing slideshow. Thank you.

  3. I love how your crows have changed and evolved over the years. You are growing as an artist and a person!

  4. I adore this new painting, it's just breathtaking. Enjoy your snow and sunshine! BIG hugs, Valerie

  5. Oh I love this painting....the young crow ready to spread his wings yet still wanting a reassuring hug...and the adult crow looking so proud and loving :) XXX

  6. Wow this is Marvelous painting dear Stacy!!!

    magical hug indeed,serene and overwhelming!

    congratulations for finishing such lovely painting ,and i think they are changing for better !

    this is beautiful view of snow in your area ,each day sun too shined that is great:)

  7. Lovely and magical painting! We are in the same boat with snow. Cold but beautiful!

  8. What materials are you using? Oil on canvas?

    I'm afraid I have nowhere near as much patience as you. My paintings are usually done in one session, and on such surfaces as paper and wood, with acrylics.

    Pathetic, I know.

    1. Hi Bill! You are not pathetic! That is the way you're art is coming out of you right now.
      I use acrylics and I usually paint on canvas, or linen paper, sometimes birch wood too.
      Keep painting my friend!

  9. So realistic! We done.
    Looks like a really healthy snowfall.

  10. Awe, I love your new painting!!! Snow, burrrrrrrrrrr!!!!You will need more hugs from your "friend" to warm up,lol!!!

  11. it's been cold here, too, after some snow. Brrrr. Crow hugs would be a good way to keep warm.

  12. Gorgeous photo you cab defintly see the winters inspired you creatively. Big hugs

  13. Haha, "Mama Crow" came to mind as I gazed at this deeply moving image. Such tenderness could only be that of a mother for her chick!! Oh how I love it.:))
    I am SO jealous...just LOOK at that wonderful snow!! PLEASE can you send some my way? I would be eternally grateful!!! ;)

    Have a Magical Weekend, Sweetie...

    And Much Love & Hugs xoxoxo

  14. I love the black and white (of the snow and the painting). I also love the changes of your crow--they look happy, comforting, full of promise... "Big Crow Hugs" sounds lovely.

  15. I love the way you develop your paintings, it's almost like you are adding layers of love as you go along.
    Gorgeous snowy photo too. x

  16. they are changing! your artwork is just is your technique.
    "Big Crow Hugs" sounds cute!

  17. yes, your paintings are morphing into love. Is something changing in your life?

  18. Oh this is so beautiful, I think it is one of my favorites! I love it!

  19. o wow, what a transformation. The moment that second crow joined the picture it became completely different. It's beautiful and so sweet ... ♥

  21. Love your snow photo's.

  22. Glad the shoveling wasn't too bad. I love when the snow is fluffy and easy. :)

    What a gorgeous painting. I loved seeing the details get added in the photos and the final product is fabulous. Love the texture and "the embrace". Beautiful!


  23. Very beautiful Stacy. Serenely beautiful.
    I am so happy for you and your success as an artist. Even when your crows change I see your love in each one that you create.

    Hugs My Friend

  24. love the snow pics and your new crow painting - wonderful!!

  25. Your crows are definitely looking a bit different over time. Thing is, they only seem to get even better. The realistic detail in this one is fascinating! Just lovely!

  26. I am so jealous of your snow!!! I live in Southern California. It's 80 degrees and everything's on fire! :'(

  27. I can feel the love. It's wonderful, Stacy.

  28. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Hugs Barbara
