My Friend the Raven - new art print

I finished a new original, "My Friend the Raven" she is on an 8x10 canvas. I am not selling the original just yet, but prints are available of her from a range of sizes (4x6, 5x7, 8x10) in the Etsy shop.

I wanted to try something new, so I tried using newspaper for a few pieces. I have seen some artists using newspapers, clippings from variety of different articles, magazines and I have also seen the use of bees wax. And they have inspired me to try some new things.

I find it so amazing the amount of different pieces and recycled items one can use to create artwork. I would love to try using cloth, stones, and fabrics on my art pieces. I think it would bring a certain level of uniqueness. I would love to find objects from different places and countries and when they inspire me use them in an art piece.

Till the next time...

Yes, I love to use newspapers, decorative papers, and fabrics. It is fun!
And the beeswax mmm. rich texture.
I like how you painted her hair and the strong look of her face.
