My thoughts keep wandering to the west. This is the time of the year I would be in Wyoming painting but unfortunately it wasn't to be this year and I miss it.
This painting was from last year's trip. A couple of us set up on (and in) the river to paint one day. I always seem to be drawn to these complicated subjects - this fallen Aspen no exception. After realizing I was "thinking" too much I decided to just let loose and go for it. It's very loose but to me it tells the story and reminds of that beautiful day with good friends and good times. What more can you ask for?

I Sing To The Moon - original raven painting by Deb Kirkeeide

I Sing To the Moon  8x8 Oil SOLD
Ravens and the moon have been on my mind lately. Of course with my fondness for ravens
that should come as no surprise. I also have some bigger pieces in the works along that same theme,
so look for those coming up.

With both subjects wrapped in mystery and magic, this one would make a nice little piece for  the coming All Hollows Eve!

This one is painted on a maple panel and is ready to hang with or without a frame.
