On a trip to Belize I was mesmerized by the tropical foliage and birds. I often use birds as messengers in my work.
Heron’s were the Iroquois’ symbol for wisdom and considered a powerful omen for good.
The Japanese tradition of creating one thousand origami cranes as a message for hope and healing was also in my mind when painting this piece.
This work was painted as a study for a tapestry weaving for a new series Dreaming of Belize
