This painting is a further development of a posting from July 12, 2012. I decided to go back and rework parts of the painting and replace the additional two swimming birds with cygnets (young swans) to make the painting more unified. The cygnets remind me of the constellation Cygnus going all the way back to Greek mythology and in todays’ astronomical study has many stars with known planets with some thought to be in the habitable zone of their stars. So this painting has more meaning for me than might be apparent just on the surface.
