THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Flamingos, pink in color, are often associated with the feminine. The Flamingo painting features a flamingo sitting down against water covered in foliage, appearing to be content with where it is at. Typically, a flamingo is showcased standing with its long legs out in view, but this flamingo has them covered, showcasing the power in subtle femininity, even when a woman isn't trying to exude it. Flamingos often represent confidence, and this art piece shows a proud-looking flamingo, unfettered by the environment around it, appearing to empower women to become more confident in themselves.
