I was amazed to discover the tiny insect hovering about 10 inches below the Wren and it showed up in the photo. Seeing how I didn't see the bug at the time I'm not sure if the Wren got his supper.
Sometimes after I finish a painting I'll do some research on my subject to see if I captured its spirit. My favorite book to look up animal spirit and medicine is Animal Speak by Ted Andrews. He writes, "The Wren is a most resourceful and adaptable bird. The wren has the vocal power of a bird much larger. It will sing from daylight to dark, as if overflowing with confidence. It is also a bit of a spitfire, and it will not hesitate to confront any threatening bird or animal."
"If wrens have come into your life, it is time to ask yourself some important questions. Are you using the resources available to you? Are others? Are you not displaying enough confidence? Are you so wrapped up in daily worries that you are forgetting to sing? Are you not staying grounded? Are you not seeing the forest because of the trees? Are you not attacking your life with enough gusto? Wren holds the medicine for using what is available, and it can teach you the most effective means to build within your environment."
Well now that Spring migration is done and my garden attended to I'll be spending more time in the studio. I have some creative ideas and events coming up so stay in touch!
And as always Enjoy and Share if you like!
I would love to stay in touch and keep you up to date on New Art, Giclee Prints and Exhibition Shows.
Also I'll include some snippets of my Studio Blog and the occasional Special offers.
