An Original Oil Painting

Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Twenty

Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Twenty
Oil on Panel

I am posting  Day 20 of the challenge a day
early because of the AFC Championship game between
the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots,
which starts in about an hour this evening.
I am guessing you won't have any trouble
figuring who I am cheering for... 

'Shalt the New England Patriots win the 
AFC Championship tonight, I implore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.' 


All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
something which will only benefit my work.

If you would like to join this Challenge, or just follow the
work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

I love Ravens - but the animal kind. This one is so great! Good luck on your football watching, mine was ruined last weekend. Oh well, can't win em all.

Love your raven!

Nan Johnson said...

I knew the Ravens would win! And your raven painting is great, probably brought them good luck!

Love the look of this raven painting. The beak is amazing as well as his/her eye. Well done Claire.

Thanks, Pattie! I am not a really big sorts fan, but got caught up in this one, so I will be hanging in there until the end!

Thanks, Sandy!

I hope so, Nan. I am going to make sure it is next to the TV for the Superbowl...just in case!

Thank you, Sherry. It's hard to tell, but his feathers have a LOT of purple in them :)

Thanks so much, Hilda - there's some Raven Purple in those feathers too!!!

There must be something I missed about the football but I do recognize a great bird when I see one.

Barb Hillier said...

Love your raven Claire - he has a very smug look on his face! Also really liked your winter scene from the other day too.
