A Flight of Fancy

Sometimes I just need to let my creative spirit fly free. ‘A flight of fancy’ Transparent watercolour 15 by 19 inches painted purely from imagination.

I have to confess I’ve had a tough month dealing with a nasty virus. For a while I couldn’t physically paint so I did the next best thing… I closed my eyes and created a painting in my imagination.

I wouldn’t trade my imagination for anything. The act of creation lifts my spirits and thinking outside the box is fun. Yes, it involves taking risks. You have to be prepared to try new things, be willing not to know and be ok with making mistakes.

But what if I fail? I hear you say

 My answer is… but what if you fly! Until you spread your creative wings you will have no idea how far or high you can soar. 

It’s been so much fun bringing this idea to life on paper over the last few days.
