My new painting has the longest name ever! But when I tried to rename it especially to make it easier for Sam at Late September (who is the poor person who has to say the name when anyone enquires about it) I just couldn't. From very early on in the painting process this became it's name without any doing of mine.
Angels Have Wings Because They Are Not Afraid To Fly
The idea of flight and believing in yourself is such an exciting prospect. Fear stops a lot of us from doing many things. It is often the fear of failure that prevents us from living true to who we are. Fear also gets in the way of creativity too, being fearful of making mistakes or creating something from within your very being that may not be accepted or liked by others. I don't believe in being fearless, this quite often comes with risky choices or dangerous outcomes but to step into your fear, acknowledge it and walk through it carefully to the other side, reaps such great rewards. I'm quite taken by the idea that Angels own their wings, were given them because they always had faith in knowing how to use them. What beautiful things were you given that you are not afraid to take flight with?
My new painting can be found at the lovely Sam's at Late September in Glenbrook.
Prints of my paining can be found in my Redbubble shop.
Any form of success is not complete unless it is followed with gratitude. Gratefulness, to the support of friends and family and gratitude for those who are part of your definition of success, which in my case are the people who love my paintings so much that they part with their hard earned money to own one. Thank you to the beautiful Sam from Late September for her ongoing and unwavering support of my art work. I am back at the easel enjoying being busy after she has sold all my pieces. Love and light to all.
I love working with paper, it is maluable, colourful and tactile. Angel wings are one of my most favourite things (as well as hearts) to create with paper, they are never the same and each wing is so unique. To me it is a process of metamorphosis (a physical development and change), after the initial hatching of my idea. They organically grow and develop before my eyes. Metamorphosis is a word used for scientific purposes but I do love the idea that we, humanity, all have the potential to develop, hatch and change in so many ways.
