A bird for me

Curious Bird, watercolour and coloured pencil on paper, A6, 2021, sold/IAC

I was painting cards to give to various people over the weekend. This was one I decided to keep. I wanted to replace a piece on my wall that I just wasn’t working for me. This little bird isn’t the most technically perfect piece and maybe that’s one of the reasons I like it. He’s a little odd, like me.

The biggest reason I like it though is the expression on the bird’s face. He looks curious and alert, like he’s waiting for something cool to happen. I’m a big believer in staying curious, staying open. Yes, there are trials and drawbacks in life, but if you’re open to the awesomeness these things seem less significant. This piece then is a reminder to be open to possibilities; to see, to notice, to celebrate and to stay present with the ‘good stuff’ of life.
