I've been looking through your gallery and this entire series is a feast for the eyes, although this one drew my attention the most; probably because I have a strong inclination towards very centered, symmetrical pieces. The whole thing draws your eye upward, then outward off the painting to let your mind wander freely...

You are lucky to have been shown something so specific by Salvia. Your assertion that birds relate to Gemini certainly is true in my case, particularly the parrots. I have gemini in sun and moon signs; rising sign is scorpio.

Thank you sir! I do my best. At the moment i'm simultaneously involved in a master's program doing still lives--far cry from my original motivation, but a good supplemental training for it longer term; i may post some studies, but no worries, i have what i hope to be even more amazing Budgie-sattva inspired pieces coming up in the months ahead.

Your high appraisal is always very helpful, thanks again.

Every budgie/parrot i create takes on such an individual character, but always veering toward the path with the :heart:

This one felt like a warrior, formidably purposed toward higher realization--the piece was very much like breaking through shells until completion.

namaste!

thank you!!!

This is the first series i've ever done, actually, to any serious extent. In part i reached a mind space where it became hard for me to nail down a fixation on any objective archetype for an extended period. The Budgies, though, seemed to have impressed me with their character, and so i am very eager as well to see how the newest pieces form. Part of the fun and awe comes in the sense of an original, perhaps Jungian, intelligence, which channel these--and that, thankfully, they all stem primarily from a fantastically benign space.

I do sincerely hope the new members of the series will offer you authentic, good experience. Thanks for watching, it is appreciateed.
