Birds

Bleeding Heart

A mesmerizing Rose Breasted Grosbeak kaleidoscope design.

I just love this song bird. I call this design Bleeding Heart because it looks like his heart is bleeding and I imagine that he is sympathetic singing me a cheerful song to bring me happiness when I am feeling down. He has never failed at lifting my spirits! Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i

Butterflies

Aurora's Aria

Tiger Swallowtail butterfly on blue Delphinium kaleidoscope design.

Titled Aurora's Aria. Aurora is the goddess of the dawn, renewing herself every morning by flying across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun.

If a butterfly crosses your path, it means good luck. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul". Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection, Transition, Celebration, Lightness, and time.

Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i. Delphinium is the birth flower of July and symbolizes an open heart and ardent attachment, also signifying a feeling of lightness and levity.

Wildlife

Fortunate Finnegan

A green tree frog on an orange tulip kaleidoscope design. This tiny tree frog visited me while I was weeding my flowers. In Scotland, the frog is seen as an item of luck and is often given as house warming present. As a Celtic symbol meaning, the Frog was deemed lord over all the earth and the Celts believed it represented curative or healing powers because of its connection with water and cleansing rains. In China, the Frog is an emblem of Yin energy and thought of as good luck. Frogs are also good luck symbols in Japan - especially for travelers. Images or charms were worn during long voyages to assure safety (particularly across water).
