Take a Word-Wings
Wings--one of my favorite symbols--spirits soaring, flying away, flights of fancy, wings of imagination--there are so many meanings.
This piece was made with a geisha image and a stencil from Dover, and a beautiful background piece by Peggy Gatto. The calligraphy was googled--the top figures are the symbol of "Wings of Birds or Insects" and the bottom symbol is "to Fly."
I changed the way that comments are added to my blog. Hopefully, you will be able to leave your thoughtful comments, even if I still can't post any. I miss heraring from you as well as being able to tell you all how wonderful your art is! I hope I can even post this image for the challenge.
PLEASE Blogger, FIX THIS!!!

Hi Linda - It's mid-morning here in Western Australia and I have been having new problems with the blogs. I managed to get through to yours but some are refusing to open at all. There are obviously major problems in Blogland and they are so frustrating.ReplyDelete
