The Protector


Art: The Protector by Artist Sandra Willard
The story behind this one is very sad and difficult to share. It took me about 2 months to even be able start on it. I was out walking my dog one bright and sunny afternoon when I heard some birds arguing with each other. When I saw what was going on I ran as fast as I could but I did not make it in time. It was a crow attacking a robin. It made no sense, I'd never seen anything like it before. When I saw the robin fledgling hopping on the ground nearby I knew that the crow must have been trying to go after it. An internet search later on told me that this is not uncommon. I don't know if the adult robin was it's mother or father but it gave it's life to save the little one. 

On the bright side, I was able to make it in time to continue to protect the young one until it could find a safe hiding place. Then the other adult robins who were also trying to help, managed to keep the crow away.  It was a heartbreaking moment for me and this little artwork is my way of healing and bringing honor to a hero that gave their life. Even if they were only a bird.

This will be available for purchase via an eBay auction on August 6, 2018.

This little artwork has been created on archival, illustration board with professional art materials to ensure long-lasting vibrancy. A removable Certificate of Authenticity has been attached to the back of the art
