Artist's description:

I think mostly we forget we are on a planet spinning in space. I want the title to influence the viewer to consider the sky blue area and how its lightness with the strong vertical is holding up the deep blue area full of content. I've been interested in the strong vertical with a "canopy" for a bit lately. It's not a tree but I think of trees. It's not flowers though I think of them. The bird is carrying something that looks like a heart. Maybe it's me saying, here is my offering. I made it for you to see.

Creating using acrylics and pastels on cotton canvas. Pastels are fixed with a pstel fixative, followed by uv-filtering varnish. I love all my paintings when I first make them but some I am very, very pleased with. This is one of my favorites. It's really gorgeous.

No prints. Ever.
I do not license my paintings for reproduction as prints or in any other media, so the original you purchase from me remains the one and only in existence.
