something symbolizing her leaving the nest and using the words "wings to fly"
i think that this artwork captures it.....
and for beth who asked how i do this, i take a piece of canvas prepared with gesso, paint with lumiere paint, let dry, paint a few times with beeswax, lay down the artwork, covered a few more times with beeswax, embellish , i will be adding a brass butterfly to her outstretched hand and cover with more beeswax..and voila'
you have a piece of art....

...but anyway, i digress..when i travel i like to take a bag that i can put over my head and sideways across my body, so i found this gem at target, its a plain jane, but has nice room and i knew i could glam it up a bit, so anyway, i am beading this little phrase on it and then who knows what else, but it is my bag when i go to artfest2007....i think it is pretty perfect!
