Joie de Vivre: Bird
Inspired by simple pleasures and the exuberant enjoyment of life, what the French refer to as “ joie de vivre”.
Prior to having my daughter and this series of paintings, I owned an art gallery for ten years. I’ve always been drawn to birds and there were many artists I worked with who did as well. On numerous occassions folks would come in to the gallery and ask me if I has seen Portlandia. When I created this bear painting I was at a loss for ideas. So, I “put a bird on it”.
