Great Crested Flycatcher Dawn Song
Acrylic on canvas

When I was growing up in North Oaks, the Great Crested Flycatcher that sang every dawn outside my window was my alarm clock. The outward reaching composition of the trees captures my youthful hope that was seemingly embodied in that dawn chorus, while the downward curving branches show the inevitable sadness that comes with the end of youth.
