illustration friday: juggle

earth angel

Does it look like the little birds are juggling the seeds above them? And for the spiritual part of our program, check out these temples and trees.

This piece is so nice. The colors and design are really cool. Beautiful. I'm a big fan of blues and oranges together.

Wonderful painting! And I enjoyed the trees. I live 5 minutes from #10, the Lone Cypress.
Thanks for the links!

If your question was rhetorical, then ignore this ... but I didn't notice the birds until I took a second look after reading your questions. Spatially, I was drawn more to the,then centre, of the painting.

Yes, thank you for the links :-) I'm all for a little "deskchair travel". I really like this piece. I can see it as a poster with text underneath announcing the next Earth Day or some such event... Love the seeds and short coloured lines.

I second bibi's comment, I had to enlarge the image to look for the birds.

I am digging the temple images - years ago I went to a Buddhist temple in China that was out of this world. It was so amazing. I've always wanted to go to Angor Wat too.

Those bird seem to juggle their seeds rather effortlessly. Is there a lesson to be learned from?
Those earth weat grass colored brush strokes could be seen as books, books of wisdom?

Thanks for the feedback all. OK, I admit it: I did the painting before I knew juggle was the theme. The birds are very minor ~ but it does sort of look like they're juggling those (what look like) giant seeds if you really stre-e-e-e-etch the idea... I wish there was more of a lesson than that. It's tiny and titled Earth Angel because seeds are just that to me.

I do see that they are juggling the seeds! The little birds around here are busy sweeping and storing and bustling about. I love this sweet and honest painting.
Enjoyed catching up on your posts very much and love the houses picture. The little girl is talented for sure but I can't stand that kind of art... oops I don't like to be critical but it blows. haha just kidding kind of, but it seems like she is naming them to make them seem more spiritual. I wonder if somebody helps her with that?

It's amazing how well this painting fits the "juggling" theme. Those bird seem such great masters of their art. I imagine them doing the juggling "on the side", while busy picking up more seeds, and throwing them up in the air to complete the magic circle.

I wanted to write "magic cycle".

I'm not sure I see birds dropping seed, instead I see the cliched "sands through the hour glass". As usual wonderful interpretation.
