Opinion: Illustration Friday

The opinions of others picked at her like a crow pecking along the roadside; everything examined, picked apart, and most of her life discarded as useless or tasteless.

The Illustration topic today is Opinion. I sometimes pay too much attention to the opinions of others, especially those that are different from my own. I find it distressing that not everyone is as reasonable in their opinions as I am! I am sometimes guilty, I confess, of picking apart the opinions of others, as if they are of no value.

The little crow sketch is in oil on canvas.

Sometimes peoples opinions are not of any value. So don't beat yourself up about that. Love the crow. Really well done.

These is a gorgeous illustration. I love crows at the best of times, but the lovely raw painterly style really adds something special. Great stuff!
