I can't tell you how excited I am about this piece. I just love everything about it. It just feels like she's completely all me... I think maybe it's because I just let her evolve... I literally let her lead me all the way. And when I lifted my head again - this is where I ended. I don't know if you remember she had a butterfly wing at first but I wasn't happy with it. I always wanted an angel's wing... so I painted out the first wing and went with my first feelings. And I'm so pleased I did, this works much more and I'm glad I went with my original feelings (it has encouraged me that I can trust that inner voice). The Swallows are a part of my childhood - I remember us running around our garden and getting excited when the swallows flew low because we could predict that rain was coming... almost like a promise. I'm not exactly sure why I'm feeling so connected to this piece - but I love that I am. I have loved every minute of this journey!
