THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Vernal Song painting is one that shows the artist's eagerness for the awakening of spring; for the budding of the flowers and the trees and the twittering of the birds that rest delicately upon them. This painting depicts a colorful bird who has perched himself atop a tree limb abundant with purple, pink and white flowers. Around the bird are leafy greens and sunshiny yellows. Pinks represent a calm, loving feeling, while purple speaks to a sense of transformation and enlightenment. This painting seems to convey that the artist sees spring for what it is: a time for change and rebirth.
