Project Description

Raven Feathers, by Steve Smith

The story of these paintings is to show the beauty and depth of the mythical creature that Raven is. At first sight it looks like a Raven is a black bird but when you look closer and when the sun touches the feathers you will see how colorful a Raven is. The metallic colors feel magical and gives a dramatic dynamic to this beloved creature.

Depending on where the painting are displayed and how the light plays with it you will have the same experience as when the sun touches Raven feathers.

For us this creation is to look and feel beyond your first impression. Take time and space to feel what is laying underneath. When you do this your life will be enriched
