Her Black Swan Original Oil Painting by k Madison Moore

Her Black Swan

“But when the swan departs, you shall remain behind, like an abandoned woman.” - Sri Guru Granth Sahib

I painted this a few months ago and used a different palette
of earth tones.  I was never happy with it though. I love the 
piece and felt it was well worth working again.  This week I
 revisited it and added much more color, more my style and now
I am much happier. Of course they are always much nicer in hand
where you can appreciate all of the beautiful glazes and details.

 Is the Black Swan her mate, her lover, her friend?
Can you tell this story? I am leaving this one to you.
Would love to hear your rendition :)

Hi Madison,

This is  beautiful - hadn't a clue that the Black swan in Hindu mythological and Vedic literature had spiritual qualities, or that Sikhs compared a saintly person to a Black Swan (someone who performed good deeds).  Fuschia or deep Pink go really well with the Black of the swan.  The magnolia flowers are really pretty.  Pretty girl.
 In India we have the  Magnolia Champaca (The Temple tree or Champa tree) - the flowers have a beautiful fragrance, also called Frangipani

Kind regards

Thank you Heather for your always kind words ~ Madison
