a wonderful concept
Thank you, Cynthia.
There must be a story here…
It’s open to interpretation, Scilla. 🙂
Love this! Beautiful work! and fun 🙂
Thanks so much, Marina. 🙂
this is really pretty !!!
I love it, Karen…whatever it means. 🙂
Scott, thank you! 🙂
You can interpret it however you like, that’s the beauty of art.
Very, very nice . . . . I like the idea and the execution.
Thank you, Disperser.
It’s not really an execution…a dark interpretation! 😉
It’s an execution of a dark interpretation.
. . . although, I don’t see it as dark . . .
I was just playing with your words. 🙂
I’d like to take this as an humor though,
it seemed to have pretty deep symbolical notion or irony 😉
(Some what common with your love for the fossils).
I very much like it.
Your probably right, Yoshizen. There are layers of meaning in most everything we do even if it’s not necessarily conscious.
Thank you. 🙂
Beautiful! Your artistic style is strong in all the images you have presented thus far…
for lack of better words..an ethereal, elegant, graceful quality.
Elena, thanks so much. Coming from someone as brilliantly talented as yourself, I am touched. 🙂
love the textures. and the crows. feel likes it part of the girl in the hat’s stories.
Thank you Scritch, I think the Girl in the Hat and I share a love of crows!
Love the tension in this – great work.
Thank you, Richard.
i like this drawing, beautiful colors… poetic. An clever piece of work.
I appreciate that, Antonio. Thank you.
Could be interpreted in several ways… the 2 working together or against each other.. The top one is saying.. don’t think you’re going to put that nest on MY branch !
Whatever way you interpret it.. I like it very much.. very original Karen
Ha, ha! Thanks, Helen. I like your interpretation.
I love this, Karen. Fabulous! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you, Karen! 🙂
Love the idea!
I just love this…thanks for posting it for all to see! I like how there is still a sketchy quality to it, it feels very organic and of the moment.
Thanks so much. 🙂
Very sweet — I love this!! ♥
Yay, thank you!
They’re smart enough for pulleys. And probably nail guns and cement mixers. Love this.
I agree, Anna. They are astonishing in their cleverness. Thank you.

David in Maine, thank you!
Love it K. Fascinating background, colouring around the birds and light. And of course the composition is neat. You know that Di has thing about ravens?
We should chat, toss me an email.
Thank you, Al. I will toss you an email! 🙂
Oh and I forgot to say — Its great to see you painting!
Fantastic to see your painting here Karen..beautiful work.
Cath, thank you. I’m hoping to post more soon…
Great idea. Lovely made.
Thanks for your comment!
Reminds me of a couple moving furniture around the house with the woman saying ” a little to the left… ok now a little to the right. Hmm, maybe it would look better in another tree…. : )
love the concept of two paintings telling a story and the colors are just lovely. What a treat to see some of your paintings!
Hi Nareen, your interpretation makes me smile! 🙂
Thank you very much.
Amazing. I love the story it weaves in my head and I love the painting. So very, very original, pretty, happy, fun!!
Oh, I appreciate that, Shez! Thanks very much.
i see optimism there. cooperation. and green shoots. just great, karen 🙂
A lovely comment as always, Alessandro. Thank you, kindly.
This is wonderful. I love the way you divided the image into two. I think you may have already received the versatile blog nomination, but I couldn’t miss you off me list http://thelinoprinter.wordpress.com/2012/06/30/versatile-blogger-nomination/
I really appreciate you including me on your list, thank you! 🙂
What a nice work of art.
Thank you, Walter.
Stunning. A very talented lady.
Hi David, thanks so much. 🙂
Those are clever crows. I really like your mark making.
Thank you, crows are very clever…
I love this story and colors.
Thanks for saying so. 🙂
Exquisite! Such patient and loving energy–so full of tenderness.
On the property ladder,
“On the property ladder” …That would be a good title!
Nice to see a draw portion of Draw and Shoot. Wonderful art, works so well as 2 panels.
You are a person of many talents Karen! When I first saw this, I smiled. Simple as that! Lovely!
Just wonderful, Karen. So nice to see your drawings – they carry the same spirit that I see in your photographs.
Gorgeous painting, Karen!
Beautiful Karen! It’s lovely to see your hand! Lovely, like your photos:)
Lovely to see your drawings, which I think you were posting more of when I first discovered your blog. I like the way the images can work just as well together or alone.
…and crows are intelligent creatures. Did you know that they speak with words inflected, glotally. David Suzuki presented a documentary about crows not too long ago. I love the concept you created, and the talent it shows.
VERY cool, Karen. Love it. Those crows are very clever and industrious, aren’t they?
I like you work. It’s quiet and thoughtful.
Quite delightful. Every week, I pay a visit to your gallery.
