Adapted posthumously from the original oil on canvas painting by Theodor Seuss Geisel
For 43 years, Dr. Seuss’s daily inspiration was his studio’s Pacific vista, a spectacular 180-degree panorama of the coastline from Oceanside to Mexico. His wife Audrey recalls, “I can’t imagine Ted really being productive without that view.”
Freebird, a long sold-out limited edition, similarly depicts a yellow Seussian bird, sailing contentedly midst waves rolling against a rosy sky, his incredibly long tail floating high above him.
Here, Firebird, uses the same elements but with a far different implication. Here his flame-red bird is focused, navigating with great resolve the invigorating seas of life.
