Saved by the Swans
Have you ever been saved by a bird? Or felt your soul awoken by the wind on your face or when seeing a plant stretch itself towards the sun? ? This painting was created as an attempt to visualize these kinds of transcendental experiences in nature. I feel like I owe the swans a tribute for being there through some dark patches in my life. There was a time when I would run out of my apartment in great distress. My steps would lead me to the forest, and there I would often be met by a swan, gliding over the ocean beyond the trees. For me, the swan became a symbol of pure, unfiltered hope.
