The bluebird represents a symbol of happiness and freedom. I based my painting on several ancient Japanese works of art, but created an entirely original, new and modern work of art in an Japanese inspired style. The stamp in my painting is hand carved with my Japanese name. Holding true to Japanese style compositions I chose to represent the masculine, (mountain in the upper left corner) and the feminine (the stream) flowing together in harmony. The bluebird is full of symbolic details and features the beauty of harmony in nature!
