The Beloved Scavenger
Crows are scavengers. Entertaining scavengers at that.......
The whole act of scavenging is entertaining and rewarding. Be it done by a crow or a human being. Being able to get what you need by seeing value in things that have been tossed away or abandoned, is something I admire...... & live by.
This collaged crow came to life from black printed advertisement pages of an old magazine. I rather liked the way the white of the paper was exposed when the paper was torn to represent the sheen of the feathers.
I guess I also like the fact that I created a "scavenging' crow from "scavenging" old magazines & it was entertaining the whole while..... plus I was rewarded with a little crow.
