Birds are a continuing archetypal theme, or image in much of my art. As a child, the only pet I could have, in our 3 floor apartment in Chicago was a parakeet. I had many parakeets over the years, and developed my love and relationship to flying things from those early, tender and companionable memories.
Here is an encaustic painting I did of a Soaring Bird, which is available for purchase in my etsy store.

“For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.”
