THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Black Swan 2 painting is a painting that represents a sort of falling from grace. While a typical white swan embodies such grace and kindness, the black swan often symbolizes hindsight while dealing with the aftermath of an event that has come on as a surprise and left a lasting impact on a person. The black swan in the painting has his long, usually held-high neck bowed down in what appears to be deep thought and shame. His body rests in blue water against a green background with foliage and light surrounding him.
