New Treasure Seeker Paintings

Title: Treasure Seeker #19
Size: 8 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Hardboard

As a rainbow appears, our Treasure Seeker immediately flies toward the rock. He has been patiently waiting for this moment near Uluru in Australia because only the rainbow can show him the location of the mystical moonstone hidden away in the rock.


Title: Treasure Seeker #20
Size: 10 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Stretched canvas

The Treasure Seeker takes out the moonstone he collected at Uluru/Ayers Rock in Australia. Light from a blue moon is said to infuse mystical power into the moonstone.

These are the latest paintings of my crow series called "Treasure Seeker." They started out as ACEO paintings, but have gotten bigger starting with #18. It's about a spiritual journey of a crow. Yes, I know how silly it sounds, but it sure is fun creating them.

Akiko, what a wonderful story to go with these gorgeous works of art! I love the intense blue and violet in the close up, and moonstone is one of my favorites.

Oh Akiko, #20 is sensational and my favorite yet! Such incredible work on the Raven and gorgeous shades of blues and purples! And I wear a moonstone :-) So glad you have continued on with this series, even though they aren't in ACEO form.

Akiko!

Not silly at all.

What an inspiring series! (The bird flying by the rainbow especially so).

Love all the cool blues in the bottom one. That crow has great taste!

These are absolutely gorgeous Akiko - how beautifully you paint birds!!! Being an Aussie, I especially love the one at the top showing Uluru in all it's glory with a rainbow through the middle - magnificent!!!!

#20 is really cool Akiko. Very clever to put the moonstone in front of that mystical moon. It adds that touch of magic. Love the lavender shades.

What a great series Akiko! I love your crow paintings and I don't think it's a bit silly. I think the mystical theme works well!
