Two Old Crows

Well - I felt like oil painting today, so I painted a couple old crows!  I've been doing a lot of watercolors for some commissions and also for the classes I have been teaching in intermediate watercolor so I needed a break. The commissions were for gifts for Christmas, so I will post them after the holiday.  This painting is small -7" x 5" and is painted on a linen canvas panel.  What fun!

Thanks, Sharon...I also love crows in paintings and try to place them in my paintings whenever I can.

Thanks, Sherry! It was nice to do an oil painting for a change.
The title also resembles my dear husband and me! :)
