'Spread Your Wings' What are you waiting for? Your only limitation is you. I keep hearing this voice in my head. Don't keep thinking things over and over. Venture out and try something different. Life is full of opportunities. You see this painting as a result of all these voices. I have used bold colours and golden feathers to create the sense that yes, it might be a bold step to move out of the comfort zone, but golden feathers may lead to golden opportunities that lie beyond the horizon. The bold spirit in this painting is ready to jump out of the canvas and explore the golden opportunities that lie in the wings. What do you think?What is your limitation in moving forward in life? If you really think about it, your only limitation is you. This painting's bold colours and golden wings inspire the viewer to spread the wings, venture out beyond the comfort zone, experience life at a new and different level.
"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will get you everywhere else." - Albert Einstein
There are times in life when one feels like one is spinning the wheels, one need to step back and assess the current situation. Generally speaking, we feel comfortable with what we have been doing. Trying something new and different seems unnerving. There are many 'what ifs' that keep coming to mind. The logic prevails over the imagination. It comes in the way of exploring other options and venturing out beyond our comfort zone.
This mixed media painting depicts a brave spirit that is ready to jump out of the canvas and go flying high. Her wings of gold have opened up numerous options for her. Don't you think we all have that bold spirit within us?
The painting has many layers of paint with subtle and bold colours. The precious golden feathers are collaged in. Together the colours and feathers create a sense of movement inviting the viewer to take an imaginary flight into the land of opportunities.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
