A Hummingbird Left Behind

This is a painted Hummingbird left behind by a 15 year old student of mine who lost her life long battle with Cystic Fibrosis this week.  I know she’s with my Grandmother and they are both enjoying the Hummingbirds together.   God Rest Her Soul and send her many hummingbirds to enjoy.

Hummingbird Vine

Well, Hummingbird Studios has had some trouble getting some actual HUMMINGBIRDS to show up this year…so my sweet sweet husband brought home a Hummingbird Vine that he ordered off the internet that is supposedly GUARANTEED to bring my baby birds around….he handed the box to me and said….” You can’t have Hummingbird Studios without Hummingbirds.”  SOOOOO ROMANTIC…… The only problem was the box got delayed in the mail so the plant looked…what’s the word…DEAD!!!  But the roots looked great and it’s now planted and I’m sending all my positive energy to it and I just know it will turn from

the sad little fellow you see here…

                                       into THIS….

If you have any experience with these vines I would LOVE to hear about it….so comment below!!

As always Peace and Light… WK

We All Have Wings, But Some of

Us Don’t Know Why

Quick as a hummingbird is my love,
Dipping into the hearts of flowers–
She darts so eagerly, swiftly, sweetly
Dipping into the flowers of my heart.
-James Oppenheim
 
Something really amazing has been happening for the last few weeks. A hummingbird has laid her eggs in a nest on my front porch. She built the tiny nest in a large potted tree of ours. I can’t even describe how moving this event has been for me and my family. But to even begin to explain, I must tell you that I have always had a deep and mystical relationship with hummingbirds.
 
 
 

Hummingbird Love

 
I’m not even sure when it began. I just seem to encounter hummingbirds with surprising regularity and in strange and profound ways. More often than I can even relate, hummingbirds have appeared before my eyes and hovered for a slightly longer-than-normal moment, and then just as swiftly flown away. And it always seems to be during some heavy brain activity I have going on; decision-making, life turning points, sadness, joy.
 
Hummingbirds are such interesting and lovely creatures. Because of the fast beat of their wings, they are often a symbol of joy, vigor and energy. Because of the length of their sharp beaks, they are also a symbol of sexuality or warfare. And they are the only birds who can fly backwards due to their ability to hover so they are also often used as symbols of one’s past or history. I have painted them a lot due to the strong ideas they represent. Here is a recent painting “She Dances With Ghosts” where I used a hummingbird to symbolize the past.
 
 
 
But the bottom line for me is that I just love them. When a hummingbird appears in front of me, it instantly brings me joy. It makes me think of the loved ones I have lost and the loved ones I still have in this world. It makes me think of life and love and beauty and art. And how amazing nature is. It makes me marvel at how this tiny little creature can move with such swiftness and beauty and in one quick instant, can bring such joy and profound emotion. 
 
I don’t discount this relationship I have with hummingbirds as one of chance. It’s happened way too often to be a coincidence. I have encountered them here a lot near my home but I have also encountered them while I’ve been traveling so I think it’s significant. And maybe I’m just more aware of it now. But regardless of the reason, I believe they are an important symbol in my life. I believe all things happen for a reason. And I will always keep these little winged angels fluttering about in my heart. Especially this little tiny one who was born on my front porch. I named him Hubbell.
 
 

 

 
 

It’s “Hummin’bird Time”!!!

 We ARE Hummingbird studios after all so when it’s hummingbird season it’s a celebration of my grandmother who has left us from this earth,  but her love of hummingbirds lives on in Hummingbird Studios and in my art. So here are all my feeders out and waiting for my totem animal to come visit me!!  I figure the bigger the buffet…..Any tricks on how to get hummingbirds to flock to your yard comment below!  And don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter up there on the left….Peace and Light…Windy kai
