Listening to pundits, writing, and then it was time to play. I chose an image from a year or so ago of a raven in a tree along one of Tucson's washes. I never know what the Dreamscope filter will do with a photo. I could see this result turning into a painting if I ever get back to painting-- with some color adjustments that I would add.
I love ravens and consider them one of my totem animals. They never come to my home with the other birds-- not seed feeders. They do live in this valley, and I hear them speaking to each other from the trees. They have quite a vocabulary. I love to watch them fly past. There are two raven families, so far as I can tell. To me, there is nothing common about them as they are the forest watchers.
