Additional Information

A large square oil painting on stretched canvas.

Red Birds Take Flight is a poignant painting describing the departure of beautiful beings from our planet. The bowl on which the bird sits, represents the earth. It is perched precariously on the edge, watching others depart, wondering if it too should follow. 

The red birds are inspired by folklore about the magical Firebird.  There are many interpretations of this mystical bird, some describing it as a herald of a difficult quest, which will be fulfilled with the help of angelic beings. Other tales describe the Firebird as a talisman of hope, or, as an exquisitely beautiful thing that is dangerous to capture and keep since its beauty and power reside in its freedom.   

This painting really expresses my sadness about environmental degradation and the human being’s incessant greed and brings to mind The Old Cree prophecy “Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realise we cannot eat money.”

The red birds represent a warning to us all, but they can also symbolise hope. If we do not want to see all the beautiful natural resources disappear, then we must wake up and begin to protect them, as if our lives depend upon it.
