Alouette, Protector of Travelers

Alouette, Protector of Travelers


Me, they call Alouette. I am the protector of travelers – not just physical travelers, but those who travel with the mind and the spirit. I am the conductor. Here so you will learn something about yourself at every stop along life’s path. I am the lark. I will teach you to sing out loud and joyfully for all to hear. 1

Dimensions: 12x16 oil on clayboard

The magic of the 12x16 original paintings comes from the artist laying down and removing oil paint during his process. 

Garland uses different techniques to achieve the mysterious results, always experimenting and letting the music guide his brushes. Most pieces are painted on clay fired boards that are set into substantial wooden cradles creating a ready to hang work of art.

Artist’s note: In French, “Alouette” means “lark,” a bird that sings in flight, unlike most species that only sing when perched. Larks have a crescent-shaped marking across the breast. The crescent in Alouette’s hat signifies both New Orleans, the Crescent City, and the moon which is often linked with the concept of self-discovery. The streetcar symbolizes Alouette’s role as conductor.
