‘What the Crows Left Behind” is a surreal scene of empty bodies holding their hands up to the wide spread wings of the largest crow. The sky is a river of color boldly contradicting the color next to it. While some of the bodies are beginning to shape shift and morph into crows, others remain empty.
Feathers encircle a figure in all black, some have the beginnings of white feathers, others black.
My favorite thing about this painting is the sky. I like how the colors Napa red and midnight blue blend to cranberry. I like the movement of the colored clouds and how they circle around the white almost in a protective way. I also like that though the individuals in the painting are changing they look up and reach up for the same thing.
