Parrot Princess & the Earth's Soul
Parrot Princess had several revisions and I actually completely changed concept and direction in mid stream.
It started as fish and faces and when I could not see the heart in the work, I plastered paint on it and parrots appeared.
Since my new book, Soulful Voices, is based on the concept that the children save the endangered species and the world itself, I love going to different parts of the world and painting creatures I have never created before.
Parrots have popped into some of my past work, but never like this one.
The little girl is from a South American tribe. I adore the rich colors and warm loving support these birds provide around this child.
I feel the need to assure the children of the world that this too shall pass, and I look to the sky each morning and listen for the waking birds all over the world. They are the Earth's Soul singing a lullaby.
The parrot spirit animal is a message of celebration. It's a happy expression of all the good things that are happening in your life, and the good things that you have yet to experience. It symbolizes the everyday beauty that you possess.
Parrot Spiritual Animal is the wise teacher of the power of our words, spoken or not spoken, for even the silent words in our mind are driving us forward. They have dominion over our choices and the path we take. Parrot reflect the immense power of our inner mind.
Check out the process I went through to complete this piece.
