And now a "BACK STORY SESSION"
Sometimes people ask me the back story of some of my paintings, one of the most recent frequently asked question is, "what is the meaning of the bird paintings"? To start, the birds that I paint are often a stylized version of a Phoenix/Peacock. In some cultures Phoenix ' s are said to look like other birds. In asian culture the phoenix is said to look more like a peacock, as the peacock is the earthly manifestation of the Phoenix. It is believed in Feng shui, the image of a Phoenix in a home represents and attracts new beginings and opportunities. This being because the Phoenix is a bird that passes away and is reborn from its own ashes, giving another turn at life, as a way to start again. There was once a time when I had stopped doing art, and didn't draw or paint or do any visual art for about four years. Once I came to know about what the image of a phoenix in the home can do, I decided to do a drawing of it. My Art in its entirety had made a comeback and has been going strong ever since. So in this sense it did what it had promised. White Peacock painting
Oil and Metallic acrylic on Canvas.
