Crow Paintings: Series Two...

We’re still saving up for improvements to the new space. While we were moving the store, we blew through the budget quickly as there were several unexpected challenges that popped up. In an effort to recoup some of the money we lost while being closed (longer than we anticipated) and to fundraise to complete unfinished projects, I started making these crow paintings.

I originally planned three series of paintings - thirteen each in the first two and six in the last. All of the first series and second series found homes. Here are the paintings from the second series. To make these paintings, I start out creating layers of paint and salt on heavy watercolor paper. The surface is sanded and then more layers are added in acrylic paints, iridescent pigments, and metallic paints. Once completed, I seal them with a spray fixative. Each painting measures 5”X5” and is signed and dated by me.

The third series should be ready soon. The best place to check on availability is on my Facebook timeline or the shop's. CLICK HERE to go to my personal Facebook page and HERE for the shop's page. They've been selling out rather quickly. I've been contacted about holds and I prefer not to do that, as it causes a lot of extra work on our end and the paper trail is scattered about, which complicates shipping and record keeping.
