Spirit Crows…messengers of change.
This is a mixed media piece on masonite board. The whole piece is much, much larger, but i zoomed in on the crows. They were born of white pastel which i chose for it’s ghostly quality…it can disappear with a slight touch.
Why the crows?
Well, i have crows in a lot of my work because i have always been intrigued by them, and count them among my totem animals…for messages and confirmations. Thus, the crow with the skeleton key for “unlocking” hidden places within the heart. Skeleton keys keep appearing and re-appearing in my life and work. I briefly mentioned about creating a key in my work only to have a key that looked exactly like it surface in the old house we are renovating. Another story for another day…back to the crows.
i mentioned in a previous post about crows appearing black, but they are far from just black. When the light hits just right you will see exquisite colors…from purples to turquoise. So they are not as they appear. One could say they wear a cloak of mystery…and oh how I like that concept.
They are very intelligent creatures, and appear often in legends and mythology as symbols of wisdom. They also symbolize death…death to an old way…a past…a change….
The universe is change, our life is what our thoughts make it.
~Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (meditation)
i could write about my experiences concerning symbolism, signs, and imagery, but others say it so much better. i can simply say…such things help me through times of change…sometimes very difficult times of change. We must all remember that things are not always as they appear even in times of darkness for there are divine universal energies at work….
Do you feel the energies? Do you listen to the messages?
Your vision will only become clear when you look inside your own heart.
Who looks outside dreams….
who looks inside awakens.
Wishing you love, light, & magic!
