Piece description from the artist
Crows have always been given a bad rap. I've heard neighbors refer to them as flying rats. Totally unjust. The crow population in our area seems to have increased in the last 2-3 years, which can have a rather negative effect on the songbirds. (Crows love eggs, any kind of eggs.) But the most unjust thing is how a bunch of them are called. For example: A GAGGLE of geese, a BEVY of QUAIL, a HERD of wildebeest, a FLOCK of sheep, but… a MURDER of crows? Again, totally unjust.
Richard Green holds a Bachelor's degree in music and art history from the University of Minnesota, and a commercial art certificate from The Hennepin County Technical College. The 35mm camera he received for his seventh birthday was probably the catalyst which would eventually lead to a career in art direction and graphic design. He is a self-taught watercolor artist and oftentimes combines a variety of mediums, including a computer to achieve the effects he desires.
