Oh, to lift your wings,
to soar, almost weightless, the
sea sparkling below
Ever since I was very young, I’ve always identified with seagulls. How cool would it be to just be able to flap your wings and go wherever you’d like, whenever? Total freedom. And live at the beach all the time! Definitely appeals! Do I have any brothers and sisters out there?
I’m working on a series of small, 9 x 12″ art quilts I hope to finish this weekend. They’ll be hanging together on one wall, all three in a row, and they all feature a seagull. The art quilts are what started me on this drawing/painting journey. The problem was I couldn’t draw the seagull I knew I wanted to have in all of them! And it was frustrating the crap outta me.
Well, that’s what’s great about drawing every day. Now I can draw the outline of a gull in flight without angsting and cursing and erasing for a couple of hours….and still not being satisfied at the end. So, yay! Growth. 🙂
The next unclaimed letter is K…..any ideas?
More wings coming tomorrow. Dream big, dream fast, and maybe I’ll see you then.
