Illustration Friday: Wise

WISE RAVEN- encaustic w/mixed media - 12" x 12"
Illustration Friday is a weekly illustration challenge. A topic is posted every Friday and then participants have all week to come up with their own interpretation. This is my first participating entry. The word/topic for this week is WISE and I have always thought this raven had the look of wisdom... but he’s not talking.

Had to add one more thing... Not talking is one of the best ways to unsure people think you're wise!

Your image blew me away the moment I saw it! If you look through my blog archives you'll see that Raven appears in my work quite often. I believe Raven is one of my main totem animals. That said...bravo!! Love the human eye, etc.

RAVEN! Crows and ravens are the smartest birds! If only we could speak beak. :) Nice work.

Welcome to IF. A great take on the topic and a great take on a raven (especially that eye)... would be ideal for Edgar Allan Poe! Love your painting technique too.
