Artist's Comments

This piece was created for a specific competition sponsored by two local nonprofit organizations, (a group that organizes our annual artist open studio tour) and (our closest chapter of the Audubon Society), "AVIAN: Bird in a Changing World." Ravens are all around us up here. They're open to communicating with humans and whenever you approach a tree, telephone pole or other roost they're inhabiting, they caw loudly at you. They even speak when they pass you closely overhead. Of what they're trying to tell me, I have no idea, but they communicate none the less. When you view their deep black coats up close, you realize they're actually a rainbow of deep colors, kind of like an iridescent oil spot in a parking lot on a rainy day. I'm told they're quite the collectors, especially of colorful or shiny things and that's how I arrived at my painting concept. The more litter in the environment for them to pick up, the more trash will contribute to structure of future nests.
