Spiritual Awakening II finally finished

Spiritual Awakenings II, oil on canvas, 12″ x 36″

 The emphasis in this painting  is on the Raven and the symbols are Haida in origin.  The scene is from a trip to Cormorant island.  A lone Raven sat at the top of a snag in a cedar swamp calling to his friends to warn them of intruders (us). It was a magical moment and I really felt a connection to him and my surroundings.This is a remake of a painting I did 2 yrs ago, but I have made revisions and added more snag wood that wraps around the sides, and Haida symbolism for Ravens in the trees.

    Elissa – I love all of your work – but this one may be one of my all time favourites (until I see the next one) really . . . outstanding. Hope you’re as well as you seem to be as I stalk you – I miss seeing you on my painted ladies Fridays ~ Linda
