Birdifly in Full Expression
BY ELICIA WARD
“I met myself for the first time in the midnight rain. I decided to be all I could be. I decided I needed to be all of me” The combination of a Bird & a butterfly in flight. How exciting it was to see the image hit my mind all of a sudden. So captivated I was by this enchanting creature I felt I had not choice but to explore the idea with some sketches. Still in love I actually painted it on the front of my shop window! The combination of two strengths. The butterfly representing transformation and the Bird representing freedom. To me this means we have the ability to transform into whatever we desire at any given time, we have the luxury of this freedom and this is a gift”
There is an antique dressmakers pattern placed on the bottom right hand side of the canvas which has written, “I met myself for the first time in the midnight rain. I decided to be all I could be. I decided I needed to be all of me”. A Birdifly emerges from layers of worked canvas using high grade quality artist paints.
