Ribbon of Fate

ribbonravenweb - Ribbon of Fate

Eastern mythology often refers to a red string or ribbon that connects people who are fated to be together. The idea intrigues me – these threads of fate that link us all, outside our control. Ravens are associated with omens and portents. Traditionally they are birds of mystery and trickery. So if life ever takes an unexpected spin, maybe there’s a raven playing with your ribbon of fate.

The Raven Portal

On a bright day, the blackest of shadows flutters across your vision and disappears into the deepest woodland. A raven-shaped hole in the very fabric of reality.

When Ravens Dream

ravendreaming - When Ravens Dream

I dreamed of a raven with blue eyes holding a blue egg in its beak. When I woke up, I just knew I had to try to capture the ethereal, slightly otherworldy magical quality of that dream. Imagine a dense forest, ancient mossy green trees, a mystical quality to the light, and the raucous call of a raven. Nothing is quite as it first appears in this place. I may visit here again.

Watching the Raven, watching me.

ravensigned - Watching the Raven, watching me.

I recently discovered a pair of ravens nesting in a semi-urban environment, quite near my house. I’ve been back to watch them several times, and they are inspiring new art. Ravens are such fascinating and magnificent birds. Here’s the first of several raven-inspired works.
