Noble Spirit by jialu Noble Spirit by jialu
Jia Lu 2011, Noble Spirit, oil on canvas, 30 x 30 inches.

In 2001 a friend introduced me to a wonderful film from France called les peuple migratoire, about migratory birds. I was so impressed with the journey of herons and cranes and other birds over so many thousands of miles through storms and hunger and thirst, I knew I had to paint this subject. Dedication to a task, devotion to a noble idea, and a sense of deep, inner direction are human qualities too, worthy of celebration.

btw. when i moved to this place here, 5 years ago, we had cranes and wild geese flying by in spring and autumn, a fantasic spectacle... they went by in their well known V-formations for about one week and the air was filled with their wonderful shouts - but then in the second year they didn't come anymore, i still don't know why - i suppose some lake was dried out by us humans, but i don't know - i miss them very much... last year there were three or four formations of cranes, but they went a different route in a different direction...

on this photo you can see my place and you can imagine the nice view i have from my kitchen window...
