A Sabia is a kind of bird native to Brazil. There  is a capoeira song which goes “Sabia cantou no pe da laranjeira”. It translates as “the Sabia sang at the foot of the orange tree”. When I first began this painting and saw the tree shape, the song sprang instantly to my mind. I added the figures and  painted them but was at  a loss for now to finish the piece when I realized that the birds were the answer. The song of three tiny birds reverberates throughout the entire painting.
