"Inspiration is a calling that each artist must be prepared to receive at any given point because it can come from anywhere at any time. Sometimes it sneaks up on us without warning, jumping out to surprise us as we are going about our normal day. While sometimes it walks through the front door like a long awaited guest we’ve eagerly prepared for. Either way, you have to be ready to respond. This spring I have answered with a group of floral paintings for my upcoming show at Cindy Saadeh Fine Art in Kingsport, Tennessee.
"When Spring arrives, the colors burst onto the scene demanding our attention. This year, I completely gave in to their demands. The paintings are a response to the point of time I encountered each of the flowers. From the daffodils enlivening the dull surroundings in early February to the bold color of the irises as they enter into a brighter landscape in March. It was not hard to be inspired by these beautiful subjects during this rather chilly Spring in Northeast Tennessee," Bird says.
