Cranes Above

My painting is an afternoon scene, but my sky got a little dark.  Just a few days ago the 4/5 moon was high in the afternoon sky and than I heard cranes calling.  Way high a flock was heading north.  We seldom see them where I live although other parts of the state have them.


  1. Lovely sketch Elva, it reminds me of my mother who loved to paint skeins of birds. Thank you for sharing this and giving me a moment with my mum.

  2. This is wonderful, Elva, I've never need cranes in flight!

  3. What a lovely sighting and sketch of it. There's something magical and awe inspiring seeing a large flock of birds flying in sync like that.
