Daily Prompt Clarity: A bird sings into a hibiscus

This is a photo that I combined from two pictures I photographed .  The first photo is a picture of the American Goldfinch, the sencond is a close up of a Hibiscus.  I chose this picture for the daily prompt: clarity.

It shows the Goldfinch singing into the hollow of the hibiscus.  The funnel of the Hibiscus appears to enhance its clarity.  It reminds me of the old time RCA victrola where a dog named Nipper sits along side the record player listening to the clarity of the music.

This is an 8 x 10 x .50 inch I did on a stretch canvas with a mix media of acrylic and oil. The painting is an American Goldfinch. This bird symbolizes: abundance, positivity, inspired energy. The spiritual meaning is to be blessed with good fortune.

American Goldfinch (Eastern Goldfinch)

If the Garden of Eden still existed, the American Goldfinch would be the species you’d find in God’s paradise.  When I took this picture, it was a cloudy, grey day.  This adult male Goldfinch brightened my outlook on the day with its dazzling yellow body.  It seemed to spread happiness and joy as it flittered from plant to plant.  I noticed the Goldfinches favor the yellow and orange flowered plants for their pick of seeds.  It was of interest to watch these birds eat.  With their conical beak, it makes it easy for them to remove the seeds from the seed heads of a sunflower, purple coneflower or thistle plant.
