We have been going up to Pleasant Valley, New York, for years. My husband's grandfather used to own a farm on Malone Road (named after him). My husband was nostalgic for his roots, but I soon discovered there were goldfinches on Malone Road! They would appear in August and fill the trees. One minute there would be nothing, and then a flash of gold. Nothing thrilled me more. I love birds, as you know if you"ve looked at my paintings, and goldfinches have always been particularly magical to me. They symbolize happiness, and unexpected beauty. Recently, I looked out my window and a darling little goldfinch was at the feeder (the seed that attracts them is nyger). My heart was filled with joy and this painting literally popped into my head.
