Seagull symbolism means that there is always opportunity in everything, even in the most unlikely time / places. It Is also a reminding to us that everything has a purpose.
As many of you may know I don’t paint birds very often, but when I do it’s normally a self-projection.
After months of lock down in Victoria, I felt the ocean was calling me so I took a day trip to Phillip Island. During the lunch I set down on a quiet beach and spotted this beautiful friend standing beside me.
The weather was nice and the sky was blue. This little fella accompanied me for quite some time and I really enjoyed the serenity by the sea with my new little friend.
I captured the Seagull with my eyes and camera, somehow, I saw determination and unwavering courage in its eyes, it’s comforting in a way that I cannot describe.
I then worked in my studio for this piece after the trip, sending days capturing this beautiful bird with my paint brushes and canvas, and finally have it completed.
Sharing this beautiful moment with you, hope you enjoy the latest piece of my animal series—THE VOICE OF NATURE SERIES.
Artwork inspired by nature in Phillip Island, Victoria, Summer 2021.
