So I LOVE crows and ravens. Forget the stereotype of being a harbinger of bad luck or doom. They are extremely intelligent beings and I think they are even more sentient than we know. Have you ever listened to crows communicating back and forth? If you live in a rural area as I do, its a very common occurrence, especially in the morning. It’s fascinating. You can tell there is a very complex and real conversation occurring. There’s so much we don’t know about the other inhabitants of our planet.
Keeping with a Halloween theme, here is my “Dark Longing” print. I adore how this turned out. It’s so gothic and romantic. I’m a Jane Eyre fan so gothic romance is one of my favorite reads. Of course this being the Halloween season, it can take on a creepy air, I guess. Whichever way you see it, her dignity can’t be ignored!
