Grackle, Anyone?


This watercolor is called "Moon Grackle." Just didn't have a crow to post. The original is close to the size of this image. It's on cold press paper.

Here's my website

Hey Theresa, my first visit to "our" blog. I immediately was drawn to your painting and I'm trying to think what appeals to me so much. It's clean and somewhat symbolic, folky. I like it a lot. ;)

Theresa I really like how you've simplified your elements very nice. But where's the crow??? :)

Thanks Kathy and Erika! I like abstracty watercolors, not very commercial but loads of fun to do!

But...as for the crow...won't a grackle do? :^D

Theresa, I love this whimsical painting. I confess, I had to google grackle. I've never seen one!

Theresa, I love your clean crisp style. And that's the first grackle I've ever seen in a painting! We get flocks of them landing in our yard in Memphis during the winter. And my oh my, are they ever noisy. ;-)

Thanks you guys!

Grackles are black/iridecent purple/blue, smaller than crows and don't have quite as rascally a reputation as crows. They make a very wierd call-- it's kind of like a squeaking hinge that needs oiling. Or maybe chalk on a blackboard but not as grating. Like crows they congregate in great flocks and we have lots of them in central Texas.
