My Beach Crow Muse running around me

My own personal beach crow muse…

All last week I was at the beach. I know, torture right? LOL… What a relaxing way to spend your time. We try to go to Florida once a year and my favorite spot is perched there in my beach chair under my umbrella facing the waves, feet in the sand with a good book in my hand. This year did not disappoint. Only problem is that it’s gone in the blink of an eye.

Do you remember my crow and raven paintings and me going on and on about a series called “Nevermore”? Well, most of the paintings are still in my head but I may have gotten a feathered muse while on vacation. He was quite insistent. Everyday as I went out to my spot in the sand, my little feathered friend would show up. I think he is telling me it is time! I would talk to him and he would cock his head as if he understood every word. Maybe he did.

With this in mind, you might want to know what I’m talking about. You can read more about that post at the beach and my inspiration for the new painting here. Also I really got excited and made a short video of me painting Beach Crow Muse! See it right here on this post.

In the end, I got quite a few pictures of the real muse and will share them in future posts. I think I’ll print them out and hang them in my studio to remind me of my cute Beach Crow Muse.


Beach crow muse finally came to life on canvas. He’s also a little thief! You can see him now here and make room for him in your home. I’m sure he’d love it there! Couldn’t you use a little Beach Crow Muse?

Consequently, I’ve managed to make more crows and ravens if you’re into them like I am. Silent Observation, a white raven print here. Beautiful Dreamer, a crow wearing a purple hat print (seen below) can be purchased here. Old Timer, a wise old crow print here. There are more, I’m adding them to the shop periodically. You can always do a search and type in crow or raven to see all I’ve got. If you’d like your very own original, I do commissions just contact me.

Learn more about me on the ‘About’ page in the menu at the top. I’m an artist – a painter mostly and an avid gardener. I paint a variety of subjects including birds, koi fish, my gardens, ponds and flowers as well as anything having to do with nature especially trees and tropical scenes. I also enjoy painting abstracts and have started creating more and more of them. My most favorite thing to try to achieve in my painting is mystery.
