Crow Painting for Lewis

Crow for Lewis
sumi ink on watercolor paper
6" x 9"
This painting was done in December, 2009 especially for my Dad, Lewis Anderson.
He and I share an affinity for many things in nature, specifically its preservation and the beauty of its trees and crows. Pyar shared this image on his website December 30, 2009 as Crow Revealed - part of his Crow and Puppy series that I love. Tanabe has a large population of crows and there are some rookeries by our home that we can watch from our balcony. The city of Tanabe uses the image of the crow as a symbol of the Kumano Kodo. The bird is usually featured with three legs, symbolizing the three pilgrimage routes.
