Ravens in The Window.....

.....of the Anne Martin McCool Gallery in Anacortes, Washington that is. These fabulous creations are made by artist Teri Silva. Crows & ravens are some of my favorite birds. Despite their sometimes noisy behavior I am amazeed at their intelligence and determination. I would have dearly loved to have been able to get one of these birds - but I had to leave them on their perches - cool shoes, accessories and all. What wonderful, whimsical work !
The fellow above sported an anemone and a fine top knot - and look at those shoes !
This one's a feather head - and must be a saddle show afficianado !
Here we have ravens showing off their sandals and Texas red boots (complete with gold tips!)
This pithy looking fellow shows off his bunny slippers ..... and there was even more of these wonders in the gallery !

Oh yeah. I love crows/ravens/blackbirds as well and these are swell. I'd love one sitting on top of my monitor, staring at me as I write.

p.s. My word verification word is "jubhumko" which would make a nice name for one of those crows.

What a hoot, and the sense of humor of that artist! We should all take that inspiration to be a little more whimsical in our art.
