In the Presence of Swans

In the Presence of Swans

photos of swans

One of the places we painted as a workshop was a park that is a sanctuary for many birds. Most notably there were about 50 swans present. But I also saw twice a bald eagle (which in the first photo below you can see flying overhead), as well as herons of several varieties, and some huge cormorants. This was all very quietly thrilling. I had never seen so many swans in one place before, and I wished for my zoom lens, which I had not brought on this painting expedition. Alas, you can see here what I took without that lens, which would have made such a difference…

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
