Found In My Tree




Found In My Tree
12 X 24 canvas

is finished

It took me more than 24 hours to go ahead and listen to Norah'S
suggestion to put the bling in the tree.
The simplicity of the unadorned tree appealed to me.
She won, so this morning I added the bling to the tree. 

Then, and only then, did I realize it was part of their story.

I think it would be fun to hear "the rest of their story" from you.

  6. Beautiful! To me the bling in the tree symbolizes little golden "pearls of wisdom".

  7. The rest of their story is that they are both a bit eccentric and they found in each other the perfect match. The bling is really bits of food she painstakingly and gently lays out for the bird each morning and they are then eaten by this rather persnickety (is that spelled correctly?) bird in the same order they are placed. So now you know the rest ♥

  8. Ahhhhh,said the bird,i've been looking for you. Where have you been,why did you leave me for so long?
    The bling is the dust of glistening tears,coming from the happiness of being together again.

  12. I love this painting. There is such a wonderful story behind it. The bird is surely seeking approval from the aristocratic woman that the placement of the bling stolen from her necklace has been placed so carefully in the tree to adorn it for her. The bird knows that magical things will happen to the tree as the beads meld into the branches and bring forth such breathtaking beauty that the woman will no longer be sad or angry about the loss of the bling.

  18. Of course, another gorgeous "face"....the bird appears to be looking at her intently...but she is not looking at the bird but she does have a good grip on him...I especially love your painting of her dress...the ethereal quality of it...nicely done!

    The rest of the story is that the bird and the lady turned out to be friends. They talk to each other as if they knew each other forever. The bling in the tree were really magic beads. That is what brought them together."I have to go now" the bird said politely. The lady was sad, but what she did not know is that the bird would come back. She woke up the next morning and the bird was anxiously pacing on her window-sil waiting for her to wake up so that they could talk again. The lady finally got out of of her bed. The bird said" Miss I have been waiting for you all morning, I have something to show you. Will you come with me?" "YES" the lady said excidedly. So they went to a garden of magic. Now this garden was filled with magic.
    It had magic flowers full of love, passion,and beauty. So if the bird loved the lady he would kiss her and turn into a handsome man, and thats exactly what happened that day.♥♥♥!The End!♥♥♥
