….Raven rave

March 9, 2016

Having found a frame the perfect colour and size for a larger version of the Raven painting done a few days ago, this is turning out to be a Raven rave of sorts, this time a little more wintry.

    Lance this is awesome! great composition and I love the nearly monochromatic color palette. You injected a great deal into the small format, a task not all can do successfully! This is very cool! cheers, Debi

  13. Ravens are such lovely birds, I totally get your rave about them. We had a talk a couple of weeks ago, for our hospice patients from a beefeater from the Tower of London, he was so interesting, and of course the tower is famous for its Ravens, Sadly he came alone!!


  14. Thank you Catherine!


  15. Thank you very much Teresa.


  16. It’s really atmospheric and stunning, Lance! The muted palette is perfect.
