"Double Flurry" is painted for one of my best friend's sister. She saw an earlier painting "Double Trouble" and commissioned me to paint a smaller version. When I think of the word flurry, I think of excitement, whirling and fluttering around, as well as turbulence and disturbances. These two sisters grew up together and experienced lots of flurries.
The warm yellow nest intertwines together and creates a strong nest which holds and protects the two eggs. As children, Sandy and Faye relied on each other and supported each other. As these two sisters grew up and went their separate ways, they now nurture and support their own families, friends and loved ones. Their lives are enriched by their families and friends and are symbolized in the blueberries, leaves and twigs that embellish the nest.
