THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Yellow Bird painting is one filled with the idea of hope and of happiness. The free bird flies throughout a muted blue sky with hints of its yellow colour being found along the edges of the page as well. Yellow often symbolizes enlightenment and happiness after a shift in perspective, and it appears that this yellow bird is flying toward the yellow border, making its own journey toward enlightenment. The colours that are found throughout the image of the yellow bird signify the breadth of opportunity that arises once one has transcended their typical way of thinking and has gained some insight into their own lives and minds.
