“The inspiration to do this painting came about from my wife Trace’s desire to have a large, bold, and somewhat modern piece in our dining room. The idea was borrowed from a commission I did for the City of Vancouver in 2010 [street banners that would hang along Granville to 16th Avenue]…
I like this updated version better [than the commissioned design]. It looks less like a stained-glass window and has more movement. Trace and I enjoyed the painting part, as she painted one side and I the other. Her side is no doubt the cleaner painting.” – Don Yeomans

“I called this triptych ‘Raven Transforming’ because the design continuously transforms from one medium to another to form a complete Raven design.
This was a fun set to work on – each panel being a completely different medium created a bit of a challenge to keep all of the pieces aligning where they meet. This meant checking several times throughout the process of each panel. I was pleased with the way these came together in the end.” – Trace Yeomans

“Don illustrated a version of these three Ravens to go along with a legend in a book called, ‘A Story as Sharp as a Knife’. I’ve always loved that image of the three blue Ravens together. In my version, I wanted to use the three blue Ravens to represent Don, myself, and our son, Kyran, in this show since our Haida crest is also Raven.” – Trace Yeomans

“I started painting this piece a few years ago. The idea came to me while I was sitting and thinking about how quiet it was the day after my youngest child left home. I felt a bit lost.
It was the first of many paintings I did that year. There are many hours of intricate twig detail but at the time, I was relieved to focus my attention on painting rather than being sad and missing my kids. This was one of the most time-consuming oil paintings I have ever attempted and took the longest to complete. Through it, I felt I regained my freedom to be creative and found myself in my art again.
The nest sits empty with complex twigs intertwining with each other. They represent all that I am as a mother intertwined with hope, worry, pride, sadness, and happiness for my kids. I’ve added a ghostly white Haida Raven overlooking the empty nest to represent myself.” – Trace Yeomans

Why an Artist Proof?
The artist proof is often the first proof or set of proofs that the artist “pulls” to ensure that the image is printing to the desired effect. The Artist Proof holds a higher value than a regular edition piece due to its rarity as well as the possibility that they can contain the visual evidence of the artist’s progress. Artist Proofs are typically owned and kept by the artist so they are rarely released.

“The title symbolizes my Haida crest and my Ukrainian heritage. I wanted to show that they are all Raven eggs in the nest, but one looks different. This idea parallels with my life growing up in a village looking white, not fitting in, and standing out.” – Trace Yeomans
