Project Description

Creating Raven, by Steve Smith

This is Raven just before creating into existence. From nothingness to a Raven. The idea of the painting is that you feel the dynamics of all shapes and forms and that they are becoming that beautiful creature

For us this painting feels like when you know all energy is going into the right direction and something beautiful will be created. The uplifting experience that tickles all your senses.
