A unique and original, mixed media painting of an exotic kingfisher. 

A depiction of life energy, the spirit of movement, striking colours (some of them are fluorescent)-they glow in UV light), sense of freedom and lightness. The figure of a bird nearly blends away onto the abstracted background; it is, however, clearly recognisable. The painting is created with acrylic paints, gesso, markers, and oil pastels, crossing the boundaries between abstraction and figurative. 

The intended metaphor here is that of an easy life, filled with a joy of a moment, the insignificance of pain and sorrow. An idea of such life sounds wonderful, however - would be unbearable for many. 

The painting is unframed, varnished, signed, dated, and ready to hang.
