Animal Wednesday : Spread Your Wings

Sometimes I have no idea where my collages are going to take me. I can't help being drawn to the images of ravens. I love their mystical, intuitive qualities. They seem so wise and cocky, mocking us every chance they get as if to say they know something we don't. They're just one of many species we have to learn to share this small planet with. In turn, they must learn to share the sky. I think we can learn a lot from each other.

Happy Animal Wednesday, my friends. Spread your wings!


  1. I love this collage! The images are great, and I love the dragonfly wings.

    HAW to you! I'll try to spread my wings today, since my feet are still firmly planted on the ground

  2. Very nice. I agree; collages just can not be thought out ahead of time.
    BTW I mentioned you in a arte y pico honoring creativity, design, interesting material, and also contrubutes to the blogger community, no matter of language.

  3. I love ravens and crows-they really do appear to have a sense of humor closer to my own that say, that of a dove. I do like how clumsy doves are though. Watching a dove come in for a landing and wobble on a wire always makes me smile.

  4. Beautiful collage. I have never tried one but you may be inspriring me to try.

  5. mmm i have not eperimented much with collages either...mmmm....
    haw and wfs.

  6. I admire your ability to just let the art take you where it will. The inspiration of ravens brought you to this wonderful piece. I typically over think things, so you are inspiring me to let things flow more... which was supposed to be the point to the 21 day exercise, but I mostly over thought that as well, hee heee. (sigh)

  7. I absolutely love ravens! I know they're talking about me and laughing, come think of it, ravens bug me.

  8. Your ravens are really something quite special!
    They represent freedom and happiness to me. Just watching them at times flying almost always in 3's and happily making these beautiful sounds, or just soaring...
    Spread your wings... I hope soon ... I'm spreadingthe wings yet not taking off..

  9. fabulous work...
    this collage is a journey... a rebirth... a metamorphosis...
    loved it...

    your appreciations of ravens and your artwoks shows you can really see through things...

    your artworks are always inspiring...

  10. I love this piece, Laurel. You chose a great song to go with it too ... and, she has a terrific set of, um ... wings!

  11. Really interesting collage that you have created. It just echos spirituality to me, I could stare at this for hours and still find it moving.
    Thanks for sharing.

  12. this one is worth crowing about. No need to eat crow. Far from the madding crow'.
    regards, fro' a raven' lunatic
