IF : Clandestine


Raven always met her behind the glowing wall covered in vines.

Apparantly this place was special to others as well.



Scrapbook paper, image from computer painted over and collaged, paint and colored pencil.

For Illustration Friday's prompt: clandestine

  2. I sure do love your ravens! This one is very intriguing and very beautiful. It's so clever how you use different papers to incorporate into your art.

    Speaking of ravens, I do believe a raven is what I choose for my prize! I'll email you about it. Thanks so much, again for that!

  12. caaaw caaaw...
    a sparkly work... love it!

    doors always open to a secret... what is behind the door if i open it?
    the half-opened door... the other crow on the branch... the bare branches... the colors...
    wow the mood is talking of a door opening in our awareness... this work is very archetypal... touches our collective consciousness...
    namaste!
