SANCTUARY
Peacocks have become symbolic of the vault of heaven, the eyes of the stars, the guardian of royalty, the welcomer to the sanctuary and the compassionate, nurturing and kind hearted mother. Painting this creature in a perfect sanctuary was my way of honoring its beauty.

VICTORY

I was inspired to paint this bald eagle as he takes off and ascends high into the morning sky. I thought of the many symbols associated with this bird and while I was painting I was focused on the wisdom of positive, uplifting courage and power. And reaching higher than I sometimes think I'm capable of attaining.

STARRY FLIGHT

Birds are the last living descendants of dinosaurs. This ancient power made me think of the bald eagle as he soared with the stars, a symbol of his spirited courage in the approaching blue hour of twilight.  Magnificent, I thought. I want to capture this on canvas.
