My  Raven Paintings


Ravens have been associated by various cultures with different qualities. In popular western literature, they symbolize darkness, depression, and death (popularized in Edgar Allan Poe's poem, 'The Raven'). In medieval times they stood for virility. Among native cultures, Raven is the 'trickster' spirit, a popular totem, and the creator of man, who placed the Sun in the sky. For me, they have always symbolized life, bringer of important information and seers.

Encaustic Painting, I used wax and dry pastels to create this image. The white raven is approximately 1-1/2" thick. This painting is 24" x 24" x 2". There are a family of white ravens living in Canada and they are very carnivorous, eating carcasses. I was inspired by that to paint a white raven.
