Head of a Girl 14 or Marilyn in Rose and Dreaming
ink wash on watercolor paper
4.5" x 6"
I've been thinking about dreams lately... not the close your eyes at night kind, the big kind, the kind that get you up in the morning and get you moving. The kind where you envision a life that you'd love living. The kind that are about goals and wishes. Those kind of dreams.
Marilyn Monroe was a dreamer. She put herself out there and she was hurt. She never stopped being vulnerable and I think she achieved her dreams... although perhaps sometimes those dreams ended up being painful and sometimes she had to sacrifice for them and she definitely experienced loss in their pursuit.
When you commit to your dreams... what happens?
When you take steps to achieve your dearest goals... how does your life change?
When you accept that this is the risk you are willing to take and this is the cliff you are willing to leap from... how do you learn how to fly?
btw Marilyn is for sale in my etsy shop
