Family Corvidae

This piece was an off shoot of some play involving tyvek; ink; paper; and mixing textures like paper, velvet; beading; calligraphy; silk; cotton. Measurements are 19 1/2" H x 17 3/4 " W. I never get sick of working with complimentary colors. Incidentally, all the facts listed are true! Crows and the corvid family are a passion of mine.



The background fabric is a hand dye from two gals in my art group (Quilts on the Wall). They have amazing things it's fun to go out to the parking lot after our meetings & shop out of their trunk! Orange fabric by Emily Wallace & Carol Henke!
