Conceptual Journaling: geese

Size 30 X 24 cm, Oil Pastel,  by Morag Noffke 03.03.09

When I think of the human spirit I often draw, paint or fashion 3D birds: geese, swans, robins, and finches to name a few. In this drawing I have tried to symbolise the nurturing relationship which is often found in the healthy parent-child bond of children growing up, inter-dependent friendships and counsellor-counselee relationships where one comes alongside another. This image of a parent goose swimming with the gosling is a personal reminder of the rarity and worth of such a relationship.
