House Sparrows

During our walks in nature, I found a small farmers chapel near our home in Switzerland. I felt sad to see the building had outlived its beauty once carved in wooden elements.

I wanted to bring back the charm of this lovely place and decided to include some House Sparrows in my painting, depicting a scenery of the rural life in Switzerland.

In my imagination the broken glass reflects the time of past centuries it has overcome when the chapel has served people and animals as a place of peace and shelter.
