Flying Girl Goes to a Tea Party, or Play

Flying Girl Goes to a Tea Party, or Play

Golden Fluid Acrylic on Paper, 7"x10"

I really like this one. It reminds me that I really need to do more playing in life. I've said it before, I'll say it again. I am far too serious and I work far too much. And part of it is the mind set. I think of almost everything I do as work.

Maybe it's because for too long, I have equated my worth with my productivity and felt terrible guilt over doing things that were seemingly unproductive.

I can just roll my eyes over feeling guilty about living.

Anyway. I like this Flying Girl. I think we could all use some of her mojo. Obviously, she was a little inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Also a little bit by my little girl, Ivy. Right now she's a blond, but I figure that by the time she gets older, her hair will darken and she will be a brunette. I also call her bunny.

This was also inspired by Easter, and by Spring in general. I can't help thinking in Spring colors. In Easter egg colors. Of bunnies and flowers.

Hopefully the renewal of Spring, the rebirth, the shedding of layers and lightening of the air will influence us all and allow our own renewals.

All hail, Spring!

If you know some bunny who would like a print, I've got one over here.
