From an Angel's Wings

'From and Angel's Wings'
Transparent Watercolour 17 by 22.5 inches

'A feather appears when a angel is near.' Whether you believe the feather was sent from your guardian angel in heaven or from a bird it is an equally magical experience to watch it falling down. It sways this way and that, getting caught by the breeze as it gently falls to the ground, so unpredictable but so beautiful too.  The falling feather teaches us that unpredictability has a charm and beauty all of its own.  You just have to embrace it, go with the flow and see where it takes you.

The falling feather is really the symbol of working with watercolour. You have to embrace its unpredictability and expect the unexpected. We may plan but just as when the feather falls, our painting journey full of twists and turns. So embrace it and work with it rather than fight it. Its a magical experience when you do.
