The Raven represents (the client) Leslie's son who passed away. Rascal the dog was Jordan’s dog and now is Leslie’s companion . Jordan always identified on a deep personal level with The Raven( The Trickster). Both animals offer her a sense of protection and more importantly a sense of connection to a loved one passed. It was an honour to be entrusted to paint this not only for who it represents but because I admire Leslie enormously for all her work with MomsStopTheHarm. Google that organization for more detail about their work.
