initially, this piece was going to have a black cat, but i like the crow so much more. i'm really happy with the results of this piece. i feel like i'm in grade school again with all the ripping and pasting i've been doing. i remember in art class all the little square pieces of tissue paper that we would glue down onto our pictures. it was always so much fun. the other night i was thinking about my past art teachers and realized that they are the ones whose names i remember. i think i might remember one or two other teachers i had, but it was my art teachers that left the biggest impression.
