I have completed the second raven piece, "Spirit of the White Raven". I found this legend while researching the first raven painting. I had never heard of the white raven before and found the legend to be beautiful. (http://earthkeeper.freeservers.com/legend.htm, if you are interested in reading the whole legend) I tried to incorporate a few of the main points of the story into the painting--the raven flying through the clouds gathering ice crystals that made him white; the relationship to the white buffalo, the loss of the white buffalo and the Creator's tears. I hope you find both the legend and the painting to be interesting.

I am experimenting with doing my Spirit paintings on black paper. It is a totally different look and also a different way of looking at the concept. This first piece is "Spirit of the Raven's Watch" and is a mixed media of acrylic, collage, ink and white ink, 9"x12". Let me know what you think.
