I got the idea for this image after I did a quick comic image in Japanese print style. Seeing all of the black birds in the prints I researched reminded me of my childhood in Colorado. I would play all day in the cat tail lined creek behind our house, busy chasing crawdads I never noticed the beauty of the red wing black birds sitting on top the cat tails. Somehow that image was lodged in my mind and seeing the crows in the japanese prints unlocked that hidden memory. This was my second attempt...I have a new appreciation for the beauty and simplicity of the Japanese prints.
