Art: Ready by Artist Carol Thompson

"A cautious crow stands on rusting metal on a boat in the bay at Florence, Oregon, U.S.A. It is poised; 'ready' to fly if approached."

Artist comment: "In my opinion, crows are great! They are smart, entertaining, and do not deserve the bad reputation that haunts them. Therefore, I have begun a series of paintings of these irrepressible clowns. This is the first one. I chose to accent the 'blackness' of a solitary crow by opposing the deep richness of its body with a warm and gentle morning; surrounding the subject with a relaxing atmosphere. The stance and alertness of the crow suggests imminent hasty departure; yet a curiosity about the 'human' moving ever closer. I used a sheet of gray toned Canson Mi-Tientes paper for the substrate, letting the complimentary color show through the pastel to keep the tone moderated."
