Crow Raven Halloween Painting

Title: Treasure Seeker #18
Size: 5 x 7 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Stretched Canvas
Sold

About two years ago, I started a series of crow paintings in the size of ACEO (2.5 x 3.5 inches) called "Treasure Seeker." I have painted 17 ACEOs so far, and this one is #18 although it is not ACEO. #17 was created in October last year, so I have been suffering from a lack of creative juice on this series.

I hope to do at least two or three more ACEOs in order to help this character "Treasure Seeker" reach his enlightenment. Yes, it is sort of a spiritual journey of a crow. lol

I love the idea of this series Akiko, and glad you felt like getting back into it. This one is especially powerful with that symbol dangling from the crow's beak.

I love your crow paintings! I've been exploring these interesting birds since they seem to be everywhere here in the Pugent Sound.
