In 2005, I was visiting family in San Francisco, California. We were driving near the Golden Gate bridge, when I saw this crow at a view point… I insisted that we pull the car over so I could try to photograph the crow. So I started from further away and slowly moved towards him. He had his eye on me, maybe curious of my behavior? I kept moving toward him continuing to photograph, until he got nervous and flew away… I kept shooting. Once I got home, I was going through the photographs, and decided to Photoshop them together… click here to see the final composite image in my Getty Portfolio.
Now, it has been 7 years, and I recently decided to do a 30×40 painting of the composite. It was a lot of fun to paint!
Multimedia 30×40 painting: Acrylic, rice paper, feathers, airbrush, oil paints, chalk
Update: 07-2013 … I decide to do more crow paintings! The inspiration for this painting came from my imagination of “If my husband and I were crows…”
