    I especially like crows because they don’t desert us here in Wisconsin during winter.

    I didn’t realize the photo of the three crows was of sculpture, at first. I like crows. They’re smart, and funny. They make good subjects for sketching, too.

    I’m sure I’ve told you this, but I’ll repeat it, just in case:

    “What do you call a group of crows?”

    I had a pet crow as a kid or should I say she had me as a pet? Unbelievable intelligence!
    Your ink and watercolor sketch is beautiful in all it’s lovely black and white detail…I love it’s eye and foot.
