Raven and the First Men

Raven and the First Men (A study & tribute to Bill Reid). While working on an acrylic painting, a study of Bill Reid’s famous sculpture “Raven & the first Men”, I came to the conclusion that I can not work in acrylics (formerly used to nice slow drying oil paints). I had been using digital photography & photo retouching at work for years—It was this sculpture of Bill Reid’s and the fact that Acrylic paint dries faster than I paint, that inspired me to combine my computer aided photo-retouching skills with my love of West Coast art styles.
