" Red Crane "
Acrylic on Canvas
20” x 28”
In this artwork is a man with a sad face representing his feelings of love and concern with nature. The window in his chest symbolizes the freedom of all living creatures, specifically birds, to live in their natural home - nature. Trees are part of nature's wonder and it is not a secret that papers are created from trees. While it is the source of paper, it is also the natural habitat of birds which play a big role to biodiversity. The red-colored birds equate to the ongoing threats in our environment. Let's not replace birds with a mere bird formed from a folded red paper but instead, let's do our part and protect nature at all cost.
