Anyone who knows me, knows I always have several sketch books at the ready for when inspiration strikes. There are usually three beside my bed, one or two small ones in my purse and a large one called my 'painting sketchbook' that I use to compose larger paintings. Poe's Raven painting titled 'Nevermore...' began life as a quick, 3" sketch in one of my bedside sketchbooks. The following photos show the progress of the 8" x 10" acrylic painting which was exhibited at the Northeast Nebraska Art Association's Annual Spring Art Show in April.
