The Sentinel

Crows often drop by for a drink in our backyard and I love to see them. They're such stunning-looking creatures. Even if they kind of dwarf the birdbath, they still manage to look so majestic.


  1. I live for those exciting tidbits in a painting, like that spot of blue on his neck!

  2. A particularly lovely painting, Helene. I like your choice of muted colors, and wonderful composition and values. I agree with Kaethe Bealer and I think it also helps to call our attention to the center of interest.

  3. Thank you very much, Kaethe and Mary. Compliments from you two truly make my day!
