Worldview - Bird

Another painting in the worldview series. The bird is a messenger and the message is always the same - pay attention to what is occurring in your life right now. It’s time to fly above the fray and gain some perspective.

The worldview painting series originated from a mandala journal practice. I create mandalas as a way to keep my creative muscles moving. The mandala, a circular piece of art, began to drop lower on the page until it became its own subject.

All my worldview paintings represent my view of the world energetically at the time of the painting. They show me over and over again that there is great joy in the universe for all of us - if only we recognize it and harness it.  I continue painting these world view paintings as they are messages to remember the joy. Each one is a different snap shot of me looking back on the earth and seeing the energetic impression.
