Bluebird. πŸ’™

Lately I've been thinking about the quote from Hermes, "Though I gave you these wings to soar the heavens, I did not teach you how to walk the earth. You will learn from those you meet...How to walk, to run, and so much more..."

I really wanted to paint this idea I had for precious Meteion; a beautiful, colourful bird, left sitting in a cage. Where she is the embodiment of seeing happiness through all despair. Despite what she believes with all her heart that there is no escape; that she is caged, maybe the door is wide open. Opening your eyes and heart to seeing what's really in front of you. I think the meaning is beautiful, and something of hope, and I wanted to capture some feelings of that! :)
