2000

large bird leaving

large bird leaving

Birds were prominent in 2000 as they had been for years. Also themes of blossoming, flying, and coming home. I lost a very important mentor at the start of the year, hence the feeling that I was “on my own”. Maybe she was the “large bird leaving”. My palette was more subdued for the first months of the year as I struggled with this loss, but towards the fall my strong colour was back. My first dog appeared in “hound elevating her spirits”. I wouldn’t actually have a dog in my life until late 2001, but maybe she was already there on some level.
