Berries ~ Jewels of Winter

Share

So often in life we look for,
strive for, work for
what is a far off hope.
Then, one day...
it's there~ before us
and all we have to do
is reach out...
take hold of it!

Oddly enough, when I first saw this, I thought that it was an overhead perspective of a duck floating on a stream, surrounded by marsh reeds. Then I saw the bird's tiny talons and realized my error. Just thought I would share my silliness! ;)~

It's as if the bird is forever frozen in time, staring those berries down for all eternity, simply because you painted it. Of course I know that the bird would surely take wing and snatch them out of midair in another moment or two, but that is the magic of such imagery. Another lovely poem to complement the painting and its symbolic meaning, as well! Very nice.

Haha! Yeah, after a little looking at it I see what you mean about the duck. It's always interesting how our eyes interpret any given imagery! There are times I see something and only after minutes of looking see what the image really is. Usually I think it's something totally different from the actual image! lol... smh

I do love to capture a moment. Magic is a key item in art, I think! Thank you for such kind words, ChronoNomad!
