My wife, Connie, has been asking me for a long time now to paint a Raven. After watching them from our cabin at Maude Bay, I was inspired. This acrobatic flier is amongst the smartest of all birds, gaining a reputation for solving problems. This clever bird thrives among humans; always looking for an easy meal. First Nations peoples of the Pacific Northwest regard the Raven as a trickster and a mischief maker. The idea of using the powerful image of the totem, I thought, would symbolize the connection between the Raven and humans that goes back long before colonization.
