This is a mini Tree Of Life (yes I did this on purpose!) to appease the kto fans that can't fit a 36"x36" in the house. I plan to make a bunch of trees with different birds and different colored flowers/leaves. But let's talk about this painting first before I go floating away on a new idea...
Trees often seen as the connection of all life from the core of Earth to the vast expanse of space surrounding our world. They feed us fruit, they photo synthesize to give us breath and like Silverstein's Giving Tree, they even give us a place to rest when reduced to nothing more than a stump. For my yellow birds, this tree is a gathering place. The perfect spot to catch up with old friends or a secluded branch to stow away for snuggles. In life, we are always on the go, looking towards the future with our big plans of fortune and dreams of success. With so much going on, it's important to find a gathering place with friends and family, and just enjoy the moment. Laugh, love, live life in the now:)
