The Raptor (The Raven)
Acrylic on canvas - gallery wrap
48"W x 36"H
This is one of my personal favorites. The Raptor marks an important time in both my life and career. Depicting a wounded bird of prey rising up in the beating rain, I see courage and a need to persevere past one's struggles. The large scale and color scheme allow a person to be taken into the painting and relate in a personal way.
This painting is part of a collaboration series between poet Alister Englehart and I. His poem The Raptor is directly based on this painting.
