Crows have always fascinated me and I am among the growing number of fans of those who adore crow images in art. My inspiration was forming for this spot B. First my thought went to needle felting wee crows to sit in this space and comment about everything that would be going on below them. Then the Movie “ OZ the Great and Powerful” was released and off I went to see it. I have always been a Frank L Balm fan and read every one of his books when I was growing up. Unexpectedly as an adult I was given my Dad’s childhood book the Scarecrow of OZ. I was so jazzed up after the movie and the group of us who attended all got together and had a great time discussing the movie and how well it complemented the original movie. I got my book out to share and it fell open to my favorite illustration of 3 black birds. That was all she wrote as they say and off I went, traveling inspiration road.
Speaking of traveling my friend Kathy is the Champion Traveler, not only have I vicariously traveled to many locations thru her photos and pictures, but I have had the pleasure of traveling with her to places I never even knew existed.
I really love how they turned out and then I searched long and hard for the perfect background and found this great paper print of Venice. Got out my newest material washi tape and created the signpost.
Here is the hard part sending my babies out into the world. But I did it the flight was a bit wobbly but as you can see they made it not only to Venice but to Camano Island.
Enjoy my traveling friend, enjoy
