Eyes of the Raptor


Hawk or Eagle

Raptors alike

My heart beats

like a mother drum

in the shadow

of the inscrutable

I love working in these media as there is such depth to the color and the layers of richness. Also, the detail possible can be stunning. I was first introduced to them when scrutinizing the work of Susan Boulet. They seem to have been her most favored media. I find myself lapsing into their use every now and again, and honoring her Shaman Spirit with my own.
