This painting is about the concept of knowledge versus wisdom. That knowledge becomes practical wisdom only with experience. It is also about how the wisdom we gain in our lives is one of the few possessions we carry with us to the end, and the gift of most value that we pass onto future generations. The kingfisher bird pulling the apple tree always carries its source of shelter and food. Such is wisdom. Once gained it is never lost. The apple tree traditionally symbolizes knowledge. But here, its strenuous passage across the sea represents the journey of experience, by which that knowledge transforms into wisdom.
Fine art limited edition giclee available in 2 formats:
- Archival pigment printing on canvas, that has been hand-embellished with clear gesso, signed and numbered. This option includes a modern floater frame (black, silver, white or light wood) that adds 1.25″ both vertically and horizontally to the dimensions of the fine art archival print.
- Archival pigment printing on Epson Hot Press White archival paper, signed and numbered. This option will be shipped to you rolled in a tube unless you reach out and provide us the opportunity to work with you on custom framing and matting. We encourage this in Southern California. If you’re located elsewhere it makes more sense to work with a local framer due to shipping expense.
Giclee Dimensions = 18″ x 36″; custom sizes as large as 60″ x 60″ upon request.
