#1 of 100

The first of my series of 100 paintings in 12 months.
There is a story behind this which I will share a little later.  Suffice to say that I have periods when a certain darkness and sadness takes me over.  It's not clinical depression it's almost more of a mild and only very occasional PTSD where a sound reminds me of another sound and I'm kind of pulled back in to the fear and pain of a past moment.  A moment when my world cracked to pieces and fell apart.  But I don't like paintings of fear and pain and darkness so I've found a way to let it all out by painting birds.  Birds are ephemeral, never really here, they appear and then they're gone before you can really get a look at them.  It turns out that life is much the same.

This is oil paint on a small recycled board.  The birds are life-sized.
