#24. Crow-n


Media: acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas
Dimensions: 12″ X 16″

pronounced: (kro-in)
I have always been intrigued by etimology. The latin I studied in school must have had an impact on me because as I began to learn English I took notice to how many words derived from latin. Not only did this help to understand the meanings of words better, but it also gave rise to this interest of mine. 
Now I often find myself analyzing words. I like to “break them down” by concentrating on how other words can be put together to form one word. I really enjoy dissecting words and then visualizing them with pictures like the “Crow-N” (=a crow IN a crown).

Here is another example of my playing with words: A-Head

  1. I love this! I love crows too but I have always loved your way of seeing words and phrases. I was so excited to see your link at Leah’s CED. It has been a long time and now I am adding you to my reader thingy so I can see new art as it comes in.
