New Acrylic Painting "Inner Strength"

Here is my most recent acrylic painting on wood (with digital color enhancement). I incorporated a design pattern I made from a few weeks ago and also painted the text "rise above your vulnerabilities, believe in your inner strength". This bird was hanging onto a bush right outside my window on a very windy day. I knew I had to photograph it to eventually put it into a painting. Watching the little bird that day made me realize what an amazing strength they must have to hang on to a branch through all kinds of bad weather. We can definitely relate that strength to our lives. Some of us have huge boulders laying in our path, but with great determination and believing in our inner strength anything is possible. We are able to rise above any boulder standing in our path. Be like the bird, hold on and believe in your strength. Free yourself and fly to a more peaceful destination.

My etsy shop should be opening the end of next week. Prints and cards should be for sale there if you are interested. Hope you enjoy it!

Jodi, I love this piece! Especially "fly" written across the bird's waiting body. Like it knows it must but isn't quite ready to leave the branch yet. I feel that way sometimes ;)
