Art: On The Alert by Artist Carol Thompson

"A wary crow is 'on the alert' as it cautiously searches for food on the soft golden sand at the edge of the sea."

Artist comment:  "This is a multi-media rendering with pastel over gouache. I have long been fascinated by these clever corvids and have painted numerous versions of the 'common' crow. Here I chose to paint a non-objective background loosely resembling a beach and sky. This was a carefully chosen ploy to emphasize the 'blackness' of the bird. The crow is always 'on the alert' for food as well as to avoid any enemies."
