Companions

 |  February 8, 2006

Just finished binding up this mixed media journal called Companions. The crow has always been a powerful, personal symbol for me- as well as trees. Crows are often scorned because they are associated with death, bad luck, misfortune. Also, in a more practical sense, they are scavengers and mischief makers and can be troublesome. Maybe for all these reasons, the crow as a symbol, speaks to me. They are on the fringe of society. Not totally accepted, but present nonetheless. I am always drawn to what is not typically desired.

Crows are observers and curious by nature. And being a creature of the air, they symbolize creativity and inspiration.

Shadow, light, magic, melancholy, curiousity…

Bound journal is available at amanobooks

    I like how the woman is in white, the palms green, and in her hands a black crow...its has movement and a quiet power to it...
