*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Saturday, April 22, 2017

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Spring has for sure sprung around here! It's cooler today, but still very nice! I can't believe the month of April is almost gone!
Now, before I show you my latest painting, as I said in my last post, I feel my art changing again. And, as always, I'm going for it! I always paint from my soul! You have to be true to you!! Many of you have seen my art grow in all different directions. I love getting your reactions too! Some of you might not like something and some might think I'm crazy, but it's all good!

I had a question from one my good blog friends. She asked about why do I put "red lips" on some of my crows! She said it reminded her of those candies you used to get around Halloween, with the red wax lips and everyone would wear them afterwards. I started laughing! LOL!

I have painted many different types of my "Crow Gals".
First I have to explain, when I paint one of my "Crow Gals", she is to me, half woman, half crow. And, I am seeing me in these paintings, because I have such a connection with crows. When I put the red lips on, that is power, strength, that is feminine, that is sexy to me, that is our life force that flows through us. Now, I have to admit, I don't know why, when I paint the face looking forward, why I haven't used red lips? That hasn't "called" to me.

My latest painting is a 12" x 16" canvas.
"Crow Goddess of Transformation"
I know there is a lot going on in this painting, but I hope you "get it", in your own way, what I've created.

I have a sneak peak of my latest piece. When I looked back at my "face on" crow gals, all the eyes were shut. Now I am painting them open! (Like the last one, that is in my banner.) To me, the universe is telling me "I'm ready"!
Sorry about the long post!!
Take care and I will be around soon to say hi!
Big Hugs 😀

  4. Stacy, I love that you are always true to you! It is interesting hearing what the red lips mean to you. I think it's wonderful that now some of your maidens have open eyes, I love it!

  5. Those Spring flowers are lovely, especially the colour of the crocus.

    Your Art does seem to be transforming, but I think that is part of life. We do all grow, change, evolve as our thoughts explore different avenues - and it is exciting.

    Yes, there is a lot going on in your paintings but isn't it lovely to look and explore the picture in front of us.

    Keep it coming Stacy, I for one always enjoy your paintings and ideas.

    My good wishes to you.

    All the best Jan

  8. Wow, beautiful images. Love it when you give us behind the scenes thought process, and I do love the red lips. Your artwork (your crows) and the transformation (mix of fun and depth) are really inspiring. Brilliant stuff. Enjoy the spring!

  10. I love the evolution of your artwork Stacy! Crow Goddess of Transformation is stunning and so powerful. The red lip does add quite a strong look to your crow gals. :) I haven't worn red lipstick in a long time but used to when I was working a normal job. It really does something for us ladies!

  11. Wow! I am kind of breathless. Without your explanations these piece are powerful. You know me I love the red but Transformation is exciting and impactful. Well done my friend.

  12. Hi Stacy!!! Gorgeous photos my friend and filled with the renewal of life that spring brings!!!
    I love you new style as well as your old style of artwork!!!
    Please, never apologize for painting what you feel and adding whatever touch or touches that speak to you!
    These are your wonderful creations that are coming to life from your thoughts...your expressions. This is what artists do. We must paint what we feel!!!

    Great Big Hugs!!!

  13. I always love to witness the changes, the evolution of your art... I suspect I will look at the latest painting for a while. Like you said, there is a lot going on in it, and everything seems to be expanding, lifting, about to take flight. I really love it. I think it's perfect for the season, too.

  14. The crow goddess goes by many names but the most known one is Morrigan of Irish mythology. She is associated with fate and battle. Strange that you are changing in your paintings and taking on Morrigan. This could be an awesome sign of something yet to come.

  18. Crow Goddess of Transformation is magnificent, Stacy, red lips and all !!!! I love your explanation of the red lips meaning power, strength, and our feminine life force flowing through us! And yes they are quite sexy, giggle, giggle...now I will have more to think about than candy! The thing I love most about this painting is the spiral and how you made the Crow Goddess flow in the same direction with the spiral. The spiral speaks of emergence and new beginnings!!! Love and hugs my sweet friend!!!

  19. I think art is something "spontaneous" and worth to ponder upon and explore the aspect of an artist in it because it says lot at a time .
    i adore your connection with crow my friend!
    .absolutely amazing pieces of art by you again!
    glad your spring is there to cheer you up.
    Hugs!

  25. I'm in awe at how you just keep growing leaps and bounds. :) Yes, it's amazing that in less than a week, it will be May!!

  26. Where did April go? I cannot believe it will be May next week. The year is charging along so fast, I would rather like it to slow down.
    All your paintings are fascinating, but I especially like the last one. The crow appears to be smiling as he/she fades from the picture. I have no idea what it means, but I do find it interesting. Big hugs.

  28. I cannot believe that April is almost over. Time really does fly. I am enjoying spring, but wouldn't mind time slowing down at least a little bit. :)

    Beautiful work. I always am intrigued when my art changes. Definitely tells us something about ourselves or that we are going through a change of some kind.

    Have a great weekend!

    I like the red lips. Red is actually my favorite color. It's vibrant and full of life!

    Always enjoy seeing your latest creations!

  30. Almost always when I come here there's a new crow or crow gal in your blog header. I love that! It's so cool that you change it up so often, I always kind of feel the mood of your blog before I even start reading.

  31. I love the warrior crow women. Crow Goddess of Transformation reminds me of powows and connecting back to mother earth and ancestral roots. The vibration of color is pure energy and all encompassing love.

  32. *GASP* I love, love, love your new direction. Right when I saw the painting at the top of your blog I knew you were up to something good. I love your Crow Gals, especially the one with the big, red lips.

  33. I absolutely love the banner and the last painting. You have captured the essence of the crow. She has an amazing spirit. There is a feeling of transformation taking place, a sense of higher consciousness. Listen to the crow and it will show you great things in your own life.

  38. I was looking at a post by my blogging buddy, Noushka, who shares her incredible wildlife photos in a blog called 1000 PATTES - WILDLIFE GATEWAY (POST: http://1000-pattes.blogspot.com/2017/05/corneille-noire-vs-milan-noir.html#more) She had several photos of crows that made me think of you.

    If you are interested, you can scroll down on the right side of her blog to the Passereaux-Passerine birds. Under that group scroll down to Corvide. Then within this group click on corvus corax. That brings up about six posts she has done on crows. The photos are beautiful and from many angles. Who knows, one of them might inspire you! At least you might enjoy them!

    btw, I accidentally posted this on an older post and removed it, so I could post it on the most recent.
