Explanations & Meanings:
Some homework for you on symbolism and the meanings when applied to art. There obvious references and some maybe which might not be as clear. I will answer questions in regards to their use in this piece.
Pink–tenderness, acceptance, calm
yellow–hope, joy, happiness, optimism, heaven
brown–earth, home, endurance
orange–energy, balance, demanding attention
tree–tree of life
vine–growth, connection, survival, determination
windows/doors–separation from outside/inside
blocked or shuttered windows/doors–represent the eyes, privacy, violence, escape
homes/house– are usually considered feminine in symbolism
mountains–obstacles to overcome; higher spiritual values; unwillingness to confront inner struggles, usually considered masculine
standing without movement–is denial of our own power and responsibility, inability to focus, move forward or follow our heart
black bird–death, discovery, healing, inner self
open book–a subject which is thoroughly understood
open book turned upside down–the opposite?
They say that the #blackbird calls to us from the #gateway between two worlds, pointing out the path to a more #spiritual or #self #awareness. Time comes in life when it is important to concentrate on the outside world and responsibilities, but there also comes a time when you must listen to the painful song of #loss in your #soul.
Searching for peace….
