GetShotByElla.com ravens alight at Raven Nest Design

Four ravens, their conception was inspired by a sign from above…literally. GetShotByElla.com creator Ella Chabot was heading out the studio door, when suddenly, she was blasted by the sound of loud cawing overhead. It had been raining for most of the morning and the air was heavy and humid. The silver gray cloud cover was thick, reflecting and reverberating the calls of four large ravens circling over the building.

Coincidentally, Chabot was en route to set up glassware, tees and artwork at the recently opened Raven Nest Design gallery and graphic studio, 1716 US Highway 1, Sebastian, FL. Hence, the idea to manifest four ravens to exhibit at the new gallery, named Raven Nest, began to percolate in Chabot’s mind.

A couple weeks later “Morning Raven,” a black raven with yellow eyes, “Starlight Raven,” a white raven,  “Twilight Raven,” an indigo color white necked raven,” and “Midnight Raven,” a blue eyed black raven, (copyright Ella Chabot 2017) were born. Chabot’s ravens are now exhibited at Raven Nest Design gallery and graphic studio.
