Crows in Late Autumn
This painting was inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnet 73, which begins with this quatrain:

That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs where late the sweet birds sang.

Well, the crows seem to hang around, too. Working the various metallic paints in such a way as to suggest a great depth of field and autumn foliage on the ground proved to be the greatest challenge in getting this painting to work.
