Swallows on the Ridge – Some of my Favorite Things

I have always loved to watch swallows in flight. They are incredible aerialists, and they chatter with such joy as they soar through the air riding currents, it is hard not to smile. They symbolize joyfulness and freedom. This painting is a view of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the place where I grew up, and feel a sense of peace and deep connection to nature.

About the series:

I love the intimacy of small works, especially those packed with meaning that can be held in your hand.  In this series, I set out to paint small scenes of symbols that have played an important role in my life, and also happen to be some of my favorite things (Sound of Music reference intended). I hope these small wearable pieces of art will act as reminders to explore the world, and see magic in the ordinary. I make each one of the pendants by hand starting with prints of the original watercolors. The glass cabochon slightly magnifies the work, giving the pendants an appearance from another time.

30 x40mm, zinc alloy, brass finish, 30 in. chain, Alexandra N Sherman initialed on bottom.
