In The Name of ... Crow #5












This piece was made of 4 transparencies. The top is just the "frame", the second is the crow, the third the alder tree background and the last one is all of them together. They are all held together by pins with beads separating the layers. The same pins and beads are holding the crow feathers in place.

Crow #5 is a piece honoring my mother, who passed away this last Sunday. One crow for sorrow. Thank you for that poem, Leigh.

Z'Anne.. this piece is so haunting and magnificent. I can't stop looking at it. I love the technique, very original.

I am looking forward to seeing all the work in person next year at the show.

Z'Anne, I really like the dimensional effect of this picture and the cleaver idea of the feathers on the frame. Very good work!

Thank you, Ladies. These pieces sat on the printer for about two weeks while I finished up some beading projects for a show. I didn't have an idea on how I would put it all together, but when I came home on Sunday from seeing my Mom, I knew exactly how it should look. It always amazes me on how things fall into place when you least expect them to.

Z'anne, I love the transparent and ethereal look to the piece and the feathers set it off perfectly.

This peice has a lot of mystery to it and I like how you used the feathers.

Z'Anne,
dreamlike, haunting, mysterious i agree with all said before. lovely piece. Isn't it funny how work will present itself when you get out of it's way?
