I have observed swans and their young cygnets many times on my walks and really liked the idea of the adult parent teaching the young child how to fly. Lessons come on many levels and while I was painting, for the most part, I reflected on teachers, students, parents and children. How grateful I am to have had many great teachers in my life.
