Crow Snatches The Light

Crow steals the light sm

If you haven't already realized that I'm painting the illustrations for this book all out of order, this one should give it away. I finished "Crow Carries The Light" a couple of weeks ago, but this illustration I just finished comes a little earlier in the story. This is the moment when Crow steals the light from a pair of chubby baby hands. I know, I know, stealing balls of daylight from little babies is generally frowned upon. But Crow had good intentions. Or mischievous intentions. Or maybe a little of both.
