Know anything about mid-century California Impressionism?

I'd like to find out more about this painting I inherited from my great grandfather. I think it was likely painted sometime in the 50s or 60s in Southern California. [more inside]

Help me find a (not so) remembered image of a black bird..

Can you help me find a vaguely remembered image of a raven, crow, or other black bird? I recall that the style was brush- or pen-and-ink-ey, maybe with some Steadman-esque ink drops about. The bird's wings were unfurled (mid-flight/attack) and it may or may not have had a single (red?) eye seen from the profile. It might have been an illustration in a book. It was a dark, haunting image and it's stuck on the tip of my tongue mind as a possible tattoo idea. Ring a bell?
