Watercolour of Ravens and Crows in a wild woodland which is part of my neglected garden -In winter the crows appear in groups and amuse me by their antics and beauty.
Called feathered apes for their simian smarts, crows use tools, understand physics, and recognize themselves and humans. But new research suggests that the brainy birds may be even smarter than was previously thought. Given a complex problem and an assortment of tools.
I love this poem by Lisl auf der Heide
.When the crows come
black against the darkening sky
their wings obscure the sun
and small sounds drown
in their strident caws.
They storm the walnut tree
snatch the green fruit
drop it from great heights
retrieve the cracked kernels.
I live in beautiful Ireland ..I am inspired by mythology,memories, dreams, whimsical flights of fancy and by nature's beauty - with all it's related moods, My work is varied, sometimes abstract, often surreal. As well as painting and exhibiting, I run art weekends & creative workshops each summer at my studio; Bunbury Art Studio on the Carlow /Wicklow border in Ireland. I also tutor art in Europe; Italy/ Tuscany and France. See details on http://trudidoyle.blogspot.com
My work has been published as illustrations, book covers, has won prizes, awards and commissions and is in public and private collections in Ireland & throughout the world from New York to Hong Kong ( including Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley’s).Enough about me - enjoy...
