Hope is the Thing


Oil on canvas 19.7 x 19.7in (50 x 50 x 2cm)

An uplifting oil painting of a starling in flight amongst a kaleidoscope of nature’s most captivating hues. I often employ threads of vibrant colours to express innermost feelings and emotions. I have drawn inspiration from Emily Dickinson’s poem “Hope” is the Thing with feathers.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tunes without the words -
And never stops - at all -
