~Henry Van Dyke
I wonder sometimes if the only thing that keeps us from flight is our fright. I was not sure how this was going to go. I bought a large canvas. It is the largest I have ever tried. I wonder sometimes if we are all just little children in different times, even as adults. For, when you try something new, you are new in that moment.
I wanted to try a very messy mixed media with cupcake papers and lovebirds and hot air balloons at my Netherworld Circus! I was unsure for a couple hours one morning contemplating how to begin.
I just had to listen to myself, ask wonderful, thoughtful, people and the air and fire I needed for lift-off came to me! I am smitten.
I actually have a crush on cupcake papers, now after doing this painting!
I wonder if the sweet couple's embrace could have ever happened without them, for it was the cupcake papers that called to tell the story of love and celebration and all the songs of the heart.
It is uplifting to listen to your heart.
Let it take you places you never dared to go.
