I love the fact that you completely changed the emotion and the attitude at the center of this piece. The black/gray crow compliments and distorts the color of the lady perfectly. It adds the effect that they are from 2 different worlds like an alien to a foreign planet. The lady's expression is spot on as though she is actually asking the crow/raven what it is. And, the bird is there defending it's territory, not wanting to understand or accept any traveler into it's midst. Such a good piece, and the story that it tells is well worth the ponder.
