In the Beginning was Scream

Crows, Oil on Board, 16"x32"

I've been luring the crows with peanuts each morning.  They gather in the Tupelo and call to one another.  They are so smart and amusing with there cawing.  As spring approached and the Red Winged black birds arrived and began to nest, they would chase the crows away nose diving at them.  
This piece is larger than I've worked recently.  I wanted to be a bit looser and more expressive with the ground than the small pieces allowed.  I'm not so sure about the green, though.
