I imagine a unified sky in the crackling of the night. This woman standing in the moonlight in all her seclusion is contemplating the middle portion of her life. In her center, she hears the screaming voice of the fox. She can be reflective in the darkness. She feels the dampness of the trees and smells dried leaves as she touches her tear-dropped face. She sees an inklike shadow and realizes it is her raven companion. Tonight the raven appears as the color of soot. The woman finds him soothing within the stars and the dark night. The raven is equidistant to the woman contemplating herself ponderings.

I then reworked the face, and the raven and added the shoulder area. I had covered it up with a texture medium in the painting forgetting to replace it.

A rather large family who has resided in the same weather ~-worn huge old mansion for a couple of centuries. The one part of the home that is painted each year, come Spring, is the blue shutters. The kind of blue that reminds one of Wedgewood vases …
