    The Uncaged Bird

    This hasty painting is based on Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.” The bird, once caged, has broken free of the confining bars, but does not join the free bird’s frivolous flying. He does not sing like he did when he was caged; he screams for all of the time he wasted locked up. Although he is no longer caged, he will never be free spirited like the free bird. He can only be described as uncaged, but never as free.
