Taking Flight

Recieved my copy of the most gorgeous, amazing book "Taking Flight" by Kelly Rae Roberts. So inspiring and exactly what I need right now. Had a go at her technique for this cj swap but didn't have some of the oil paints for the face so it looks really daggy, I know. But I guess, the only way is up. I want to stay with these techniques and see if I can develop them. I have some paint stiks coming on order, so really looking forward to those.

I just have this insatiable need to create - to paint and do more... Hmm Still just having to grab snippets of time here and there. Moments of inspiration. I'd LOVE LOVE to go on an art camp/retreat and just create and paint and learn for a few days, now that would be a real treat for the soul! Here's another great quote - from the book...

If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise. Robert Fritz
