Birds in general have always symbolized hopes, aspirations and goals, not only during waking hours, but also in our dreams. It is said that a yellow bird embodies the feeling of joy and a positive outlook on life, and a canary is often linked to the start of a new relationship or in growing closer to a significant other. Lilac flower also play a big part in this symbolism. They signify renewal and friendship, and also embody a large quantity of positive energy, cheerfulness and beauty.
My wool painting combines these two images, birds and lilac flower, into one work of art to reflect all of the beautiful ideals they represent. In this picture, two yellow canary birds rest contentedly on branches of lilac bush, enjoying a warm spring morning. The wool fibers, which form the individual, tiny flowers on the lilac branches, have been placed so that their colors are not uniform. This allows you to see how the small flowers blossom in their own time, but come together for a lovely display of lavender and purple shades. The background colors of blue, yellow and purple provide a soft transition between the hues. It furnishes a base to keep the colors of the flowers from disappearing into their surroundings. The yellow color also creates a sensation of shining sun, and highlights the canaries golden hued feathers.
This lovely wool painting, with its combination of canaries and lilacs, adds warmth and charm to any home, and is a source of positive energy and happiness. It also makes a great gift for anyone that loves birds and nature.
