I love crows. They are loud and cocky and funny. You think they’re solid black, but they’re not. I like that about them, also. Here is my portrait of a crow. I don’t know what kind of crow. I am learning that there are so many varieties of each type of bird that it boggles my mind. As I am working on this series of birds, I am learning an awful lot about them. It’s fun! This piece is 9×13 soft pastels on velour paper. Just so you know, the digital image is never exactly like the real paper artwork. In this case, there are blues and purples in the birds feathers that I just could not get to show up very well. It also depends on each monitor or phone on which it is viewed. Just sayin’.

Crow — Print

Archival matte art print, 9x13, plus one inch border, ready for framing. Price includes shipping or local delivery (within Knox County, Ohio).


I am also learning that I need to make the pieces of a size that is easily matted and framed. If I make them a non-standard size, then I may need a custom frame and I don’t want to spend the money on that.

Thank you to all those who have ordered prints from me. I appreciate it. (Maybe I won’t have to get a job as a walmart greeter to pay for my art supplies…) If you need help deciding on matting and framing, what colors, sizes, or even if you want to decide whether to mat it or not, just contact me at and I will give you some of my great wisdom and knowledge. LOL! (Just kidding! My wisdom and knowledge about this stuff is in the arrogant youthful stage, unlike my physical self, which is in the arrogant middle-aged stage.)
