"Ready" by Carol Thompson


"A cautious crow stands on rusting metal on a boat in the bay at Florence, Oregon, U.S.A.  It is poised; 'ready' to fly if approached."

Artist comment:  "In my opinion, crows are great!  They are smart, entertaining, and do not deserve the bad reputation that haunts them.  Therefore, I have begun a series of paintings of these irrepressible clowns.  This is the first one.  I chose to accent the 'blackness' of a solitary crow by opposing the deep richness of its body with a warm and gentle morning;  surrounding the subject with a relaxing atmosphere.  The stance and alertness of the crow suggests imminent hasty departure; yet a curiosity about the 'human' moving ever closer.  I used a sheet of gray toned Canson Mi-Teintes paper for the substrate, letting the complimentary color show through the pastel to keep the tone moderated."
