Life Breath

The idea of portraying in art suggests that the picture contains the possibility of the situation that it represents. The representation in my picture is that the branch is the icon for that which creates oxygen, and the bird is the icon for that which needs oxygen in order to have life. So my piece is called "Life Breath."
This theme was chosen by our host this week, lovely Ariane. To see more interesting art contributions for this theme, visit Ariane, where she has linked those playing this week.
Thanks for dropping in today and I hope to see you again soon. *smiles* Norma


  1. I like your Life Breath a lot, this sensual combination of colour, texture and lines is beautiful and poetic and this little bird looks so cute, love him!

  2. Wonderfully delicate...but I've come to expect that from you ;) The meaning behind it though is very purposeful and gives a greater perspective to this piece- which of course makes it even more endearing!

  3. i find your explanation explanatory! i'm sure i wasn't debating that, but i am still very much thrilled by your outcome. there's a whole wide world out there, on teabags, and you are the fairy--queen of it!

  4. 'Life Breath'... so tender is your drawing,
    dear Norma,
    and it is a wonderful icon for portrayal... a wonderful mirror and circle of life.
    Thank you very much!


  5. sweet Norma,your 'life breath' has (like so often) that touching delicacy, the white lighting up the whole piece, the bird so real, it feels good looking at this,you are at your best creating these small beauties, xx

  6. sweet birdy
    and always so delicate
    I like that!

  7. Well, first I love these colors Norma
    And then I am struck by the idea you present of branch as provider
    I will be contemplating that
    Love from sus

  9. This is so beautiful Norma! As always.... I so love your beautiful birds, and the bits of white and colour it sits on.... beautiful, just beautiful!

  10. ...and once again, I am impressed by your work, very touching, so sensitive, beautiful drawing.
    Dear Norma, please have a look at my blog, I took some pictures for you, tea bags of cause and a bird!

  11. This is so wonderful! It reminds me of oriental art where the subject is simple, yet so full of meaning.

    I sent you an email with a picture attached of the painting I did including the tea bag art you mailed me. It may be a little crazy for you, but now I can hang your art on my wall where I can see it every day.

  12. great colours Norma

    I love the cycle of tree giving, bird needing and all contained on that wonderful backdrop of a tiny window of teastained paper. It never fails to impress me :)
