"Using Middle America as her muse, Kowch draws the history of a particular place -- invariably rural -- to the surface as it collides with a new reality in layers of metaphor and moodiness. The faces of her women may remind you of characters in a Tim Burton film."

"No One's Watching"
11" x 14" Acrylic on canvas

A piece originally done for Thumbtack Press, this is a painting that I just wanted to let loose and have a little fun with. So, no real deep meaning here (unless, of course, you want there to be!) besides the fact that I love crows, and wanted to paint them in an interesting situation - playing cards. Crows are known for their intelligence, so it could happen, right? ;) And as for the scarecrow trying to peek inside the window. . . well, if it has no head, then who's keeping an eye on these mischievious tricksters???
