Drawing / Wings

Birds on the wing in the summer cupboard, me wings too.
Warm south wind, flowered breezes, gliding through the house are having that effect on me.

And the ancient dream; how would it feel to have wings, or is it just the longing, the magic of that dream that carries a greater value.

Just when she thought she had grasped it......

The drawing challenge this week is hosted by the creative and free spirited Jasmin over at Jazzy two shoes .

  3. Beautiful! to me this speaks of freedom, longing for the flying dream and how giddy it feels to take flight and yet natural like we really know somewhere inside us how to do it. Very inspiring post :)

  4. Often I dream of flying, and I love it, I never have wings.

    Wings take us places, wings usually mean we have birds eye view, we see farther if we are able to take flight.

    We believe angels have wings, they can sore in the heavens, among the stars.

    Great, great, photos and art! I'm loving it!

    Thank you, for sharing!

  5. really magic paintings - the last one is like a dream and the little bird (sea mew?) in your cupboard is wonderful. now I wan't to fly to my favourite beach in denmark...

  7. First of all, I love that you have a "summer cupboard".
    Your paintings are so rich, in color, meaning, and thought. There is so much to read there.

  8. Dear Renilde,
    yes, your seagull is very pretty! Did you made it with plaster?
    A summer cupboard... giving me wings too... and even the pretty shells tells from the seaside.

    Your paintings exhales freedom, femaleness and mystery. Wonderful.
