Someone gave me this little glass bluebird of happiness about 12 years ago. It has had a presence in my studio ever since...gently reminding me to "be happy". Sometimes when in the depth of despair and anguish, it helps to look at this bluebird. I tend to get lost in the blue glass, and that can be a good thing. The deep blue is like the waves of the ocean, and I imagine them carrying me away from troublesome times...leading me to something better. I hope this little painting will do the same for someone else!
