Sometimes, you find the key to your problems in the dark moment.
There is always a magic door and a key near you. The light and the
solution aren't far. Sad events can be a source of enrichment too.
The bird I drew isn't an eagle or a parrot, it's a crow. (If you wish,
you can also view a detail and the work in progress here...)

Prints/posters of this artwork now available!

Also purchase a bigger jpg version to have it as a wallpaper!

Ofcours it's a crow,You captured the characteristics of the shape of head and beak in movement very well.

I just made a simple ilustration to a short poem of other person here,for a little challenge,that spoke of a key,and for other challenge I wrote about those heavy moments... So this piece relates to me in many ways, cause raven is my totem animal from northamerican indians Medicine Wheel / zodiac. I actually was this close with real alive reven,but he was much bigger,well ofcours it's not the same kind of bird but it has similar characteristics.
One of my friends long ago still in Poland, started to work in ZOO -(in Wrocław,one of the biggest from Poland)- especially to plan freeing this raven and I have seen him befor he brought it to nature park, where one if his friends was a guard there and they let him free there...
It was one of my best experiences I ever had... Raven was 60 years old, and over meter tall! His claws could hold my arm in grasp and if he would spread his wings open they would reach 2m! Beak was enormous, but the smart look scanning me was the most impressive, he didn't say anything,but my friend told me that he sometimes said something so deep, like if it was some philosopher or psycholog who said it not a bird!
