Carrie With Crow

Older painting that I just had professionally scanned...always so much better than what I can shoot on my own...should be for the price! Carrie was one my drawing class models (before heading off to college) and this was actually a pose from the drawing class one night. Her expression and posture had sort of an "attitude" to it that I liked for this painting. At the same time, I was looking for an excuse to paint a crow or crows and decided out of the blue to put one on her shoulder. This painting gets a lot of attention in shows and generates interesting conversations. I'm currently offering prints.
Oil, 24X30.
