The Harbinger

Original Swallow Oil Painting 12×16 on wood panel

Did you know that Swallows can be observed flying close to the ground when bad weather is on the way?

That’s because the low barometric pressure pushes all the insects down lower to the ground, which invites the swallows to feed at ground level!

A classic example of why birds are so important to us, their fragility and sensitivity to so many elements act as an invaluable barometer to our environment, which is rapidly changing due to the impact we have on it.

My paintings may seem like natural scenes, but always hidden within them are more poignant meaning. I have never been so good with portraying my thoughts and frustrations eloquently with words, but this is why I paint!
