Bird Songs will always be a special work from my heart. It sold the morning after I presented to the world before I could even put it in the shop here on the site for sale! Needless to say I put my heart and soul out there and the world responded with love.
This piece would never have flowed out of me if it wasn't for the inner beauty and the talent of Nancy Maliwesky. A beautifully talented folk singer and song writer from Syracuse, New York. I want you all to know of Nancy's beautiful songs and the vulnerability she lives by sharing them with each of us every time she creates. Please check out her talents here.
One day about a week ago Nancy posted up the lyrics to a song called Bird=Brave. She tagged me in the post as if to say this one is just for you. I know that it wasn't just for me but as I read those words the tears welled up in my eyes and out spilled a feeling of...I get it. I can do this. I've got this even when I drop down there is someone behind me saying I believe in you. We all need that don't we. I know in my life growing up they were few and far between but when those persons appeared it was like a desert being replenished and coming to life again. So Nancy's words hit my heart and I replied to her post saying when she had the song completed let me know because I would love to paint to that song. I knew in my heart I needed to do this.
Not that long after Nancy posted up the song and the tears came once again. So I replied to her that it was my turn, it was time to paint! So I set up my place to unleash my heart and set up the music and started with Bird=Brave and just let the music play through her list of songs she has crafted so masterfully. The tears began again but were not sorrowful tears of days gone by. The tears were of joy that I had found another person to connect with that I could believe in and who in turn believed in me.
This painting is a reflection of what I see in Nancy and of her beautiful songs and words to live by. She is a beautiful story teller through song and I am so grateful to have her as my bird sister!
With Love from me to you Nancy! Thank you for your beautiful gift and being here in my corner!
