Crow Commission



I was commissioned by a client to do a piece for a friend on her birthday. Her favourite animal is a crow, which came with its own challenges. Mainly capturing enough detail in the dark feathers to show the birds character, but I was very happy with the result, as the recipient seemed to be:

"I was the blessed recipient of the amazing crow painting that you were recently commissioned to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

To say that I love it just doesn't capture how the piece helps me to feel. It is hung where I can see it every day, most of the day. Crows are my spirit animal and they help me to feel grounded and at peace, so when I look at it, I feel at home, and there is no better feeling than that.

Your work is amazing and the details astonishing!!! To capture the essence of a crow is very challenging because of its monochromatic colouring, but you have brought it to life with your attention to every detail, no matter how small! The eye is spectacular!

You are beyond talented and I feel incredibly privileged to have a piece of your work.

Thank you again for creating such a magical piece just for me! I am so very grateful

Much love and gratitude,

Cheers, Christina"
