Day 19: The Messenger

raven
The Messenger. 10″ x 14″. Arches 140 lb, rough, watercolor paper block.

On this eve of the 2017 inauguration of our 45th president, the raven spoke to me as the subject for Day 19’s painting. In some cultures, ravens are associated with death and the underworld. However in other cultures, they can also symbolize transformation, positive or negative. Given the trepidation that surrounds the new, incoming president, the raven seems very appropriate tonight. Let’s see what sort of transformation this new administration will bring us.
