About The Artwork:
This illustration is a celebration of childhood memories that bring me joy. Whirligigs/helicopters/whirlers/twisters/maple seeds - whatever you call them - still excite me to this day. And long bicycle rides through the neighborhood, investigating flowers and pretending they were dolls.
Maple seeds are often seen as a symbol of hope and new beginnings. As the seeds fall from the tree and drift on the wind, they represent the potential for growth and renewal. The intricate design of the seeds also suggests a sense of beauty and harmony, reminding us of the interconnectedness of all things. In some cultures, maple seeds are associated with abundance and prosperity, as the trees are valued for their wood, sap, and other resources. Overall, the symbolism of maple seeds speaks to the cycles of nature and the potential for growth and renewal in our own lives.
Bicycles are a powerful symbol of movement, freedom, and progress. They are also associated with physical health and well-being, as they promote exercise and an active lifestyle. In some cultures, bicycles are also seen as a symbol of community, as they bring people together and promote a sense of shared experience. Overall, the symbolism of bicycles speaks to the importance of movement, freedom, and connection in our lives.
"And above all, watch the whole world around you with glittering eyes because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." — Roald Dahl
