“A Murder of Crows” -framed

John’s painting of ” A Murder of Crows” was selected to be part of this year’s prestigious exhibit of world-class bird art at the Leigh Yawkey Woods Art Museum.  His painting will no doubt be a “show-stopper” with it’s bright yellow crime scene tape custom built into the frame!  John found these dead birds and felt it would make an interesting theme of beauty and tragity in the same picture.

Both Sue and John are exhibiting in this prestigious show with many of the worlds finest animal artists.  Sue’s mixed media painting of a Caddisfly walking under the ice is a most intriguing work!  John’s acrylic painting of Canada geese captures their grace and elegance.
