Family Outing

Family Outing


14 x 17 inches; tempera watercolor and ink on paper


A painting depicting a family of birds. One on top of the other simply enjoying a day. Perhaps a mother with her chicks. Perhaps a father carrying the young ones to play.

Series Inspiration:

A collection of watercolor and ink paintings of birds. Birds have an exquisite and powerful essence of song, community and flight. Birds seem to escape many of the laws that bind us, including gravity. Many cultures believe that Birds form the link between Earth and the heavens, with the very lightness of their being. With strong colors and bold lines, I’ve attempted to enliven these images with both bird energy and totemic impact. Enjoy.
