Friend is family by choice.

And you my dear, you are my family by choice.

-We are all different, but we make each other better. -

Kingfisher, has impeccable vision and are capable of seeing by zooming into the object, is the symbol of peace, prosperity, love and sunshine.
From ancient Greece old legend tells, kingfishers used to be dull grey. When Noah released it from the ark, it flew towards the sun and was burnt and changed into a bright new colour.
It is also associated with Jupiter in astrology - a symbol for abundance and wealth. A kingfisher is a symbol of fertile harvest and good fortune.

As many of you may know I don’t paint birds often, but when I do it’s normally a self-projection.

From where I live in Bayswater, there is a big field of open woodland near my studio.
The grassland is always my favourite playground, especially during the lockdown. I often accompanied by varies local birds such as cockatoos, magpies, rosellas and so on. They make a great company during the lock down for the past few months to me, they are my best friends.
Which also inspired me to paint this small size artwork in a series. Like a year book, featuring all our friends, carrying all kinds of memories.
Each bird has different appearance, different personality, and each one of them might remind you of that specific, special friend of yours. That person might be pretty, fun or even weird in a good way, and you love him/ her no matter what.
This artwork reminds me of those who care about us when we are apart, and people who stay by our side for always.

That’s why I name this small series – Family by Choice. Hope you enjoy this original series of mine.
A latest piece from my animal series -THE VOICE OF NATURE -.
