Winter in the Mountains – Raven – 18″ x 21 7/8″ – 950 Edition Signed and Numbered Paper Prints
“The raven is not very endearing in the mind of the public. However, I really appreciate the raven. This is partly because of its association with the wilderness. Ravens are almost never found in the area where I grew up. On those special occasions when I would be able to go into the wild, the call of the raven would often signal my arrival.
On a winter trip to Yosemite Park, the wonderful resonant vocalizations of the ravens were the main sounds in the frosty air. This painting is an attempt to sum up the mood of that spectacular occasion.” – Robert Bateman
