Now, let me tell you the story of my Raven.

Four times I thought it had found a home.  I got four emails from four people who really wanted my Raven.  But one by one, they changed their minds all good reasons, like the size wasn’t right or they couldn’t afford it,  that I understood.

The unusual part was how excited each person seemed about it, but then something stopped them from getting it.

Raven took me on a bit of a ride.  And when it was done, I was in a different place.

Raven is a powerful symbol.  One so powerful it took me a year to start creating its image.  I read how it would bring transformation even death in one form or another.  I wasn’t ready for that. But Raven kept showing up and eventually, I was ready.

When all the emailing between me and potential buyers was done, I could feel myself headed for a bad place.  Was my Raven too big, too expensive maybe not even a good piece of art?

So I went into my studio to see.

There on the wall hung my Raven.  My stitched and painted image of the Raven on an old quilt.  There were the old hand-sewn stitches, highlighted in blue paint, brought back to life.  There were my woodland mushrooms, just where they were supposed to be.  And there was the raven in flight, moving from one place to another.

It was a good even powerful piece of art, I could see that, I could feel it.  Looking at it I knew, from now on, when I want to conjure up Raven magic, it will be this fabric painting that I envision.

I also knew I could go down that dark road of self-doubt I’d been before, or I could take a lesson from the Raven.  That powerful bird who encourages us to be the enchanter in our own lives.

You must put aside your fear of being a voice in the wilderness….as you learn to allow your personal integrity to be your guide…”

“Shapeshift that old reality and become your future self,”  write Jamie Sams and David Carson in Medicine Cards.

I took a lesson from Raven and decided to trust myself and my art.  And I trust Raven too.  I believe that my Raven knows where she wants to be.

If that person is you, you can buy my Raven Fabric painting in my Etsy Shop, just click here.  Or you can email me at [email protected].

My paintings of the ravens come from photos I took of the ravens who live on the farm.  The mushrooms are painted from photos I’ve taken of mushrooms on my walks in the woods in the past few years.

After I painted them, I stitched the images using my free-motion sewing machine.  You can read and see pictures of the whole process from the beginning.  Just click here.

All the mushrooms come from the photos I took while walking in the woods.

I painted the image of my flying raven from a video I took of the Ravens on the farm flying from tree to tree.

  1. It is really stunning. Would you consider making postcards and/or refrigerator magnets with Raven, as you did with the Heron?
