I thinks very creative ways to draw birds I mean he could just of drawn birds but he didn't and that is way I think is a out of the box thinker.

The piece seems different than simple paintings because the artist incorporated the bird into the leaves and made them seem blended. I think this is outside of the box because the artist decided to go with their own style rather than draw realistically.

This painting is "mysterious" because of its ambiguity and mood. The pink and blue sky, the mountains, and the rest of the background add to the air of calmness and stability that the painting has. Apart from the obvious, the birds could be a symbol of something. I think that symbolism is an important part of surrealism art. They could be a symbol of nature's beauty or they could even represent family and harmony. The painting has so many possible representations that it adds to the mystery of the painting and what it stands for.
Personally, this painting does affect me in many different ways. Now this may be because I'm in a slightly sentimental mood as I type these words, but I still think that I should share my thoughts. This painting really made me think. We all are the leaves of our family tree, each one of us with slightly different patterns and even a few scars. No matter how far our wings take us, we are always going to be part of our families. Julia Crenshaw - Grade 8

The painting is mysterious in a way due to the birds being leafs or leafs being birds. But, that's not how I feel about this painting. The painting itself is interesting because of the way it is designed and with the colors that were picked as well.

This painting is a mystery in a way where you can't tell if the leaves are forming into birds or if birds are forming into leaves. This leaves you questioning the painting. Are they birds or leaves. It also gives off a mysterious vibe from the colors that were chosen to go together and make the painting.

It doesn't look that mysterious. I see paintings like this a lot. People have crazy ideas and some are just amazing to even think about.

It is mysterious because of the color of the sky. It has this dreamy atmosphere that probably couldn't be accomplished without the color. The other obvious thing is the bird leaves, which seems like something you would see in a strange dream. It makes me feel tired.
