If I Could Fly


If I could fly...
I would leave this broken body behind
I would soar where boredom would not find me.
I would follow my muse and paint only with colors of sea and sky
wind and rain.
I would let my heart rise and let my mind fall, my thoughts tucked neatly away in the clouds
If I could fly...
This is my entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge where the theme is "wings". Digital composition in black and white, dictionary clipping, Frida image Flicker free and Dover Tattoo and wing images. Artistic filters in Photoshop.

  4. Hi Lori,
    What a beautiful piece--I love Frida!! And I love everything about your work...wonderful...Sometimes I wonder if Frida sees all of the women across the globe enjoying and experimenting with art...I think she would say to all of us, "Keep on keeping your creativity alive." You certainly keep yours alive and vibrant and powerful. Hugs, Cindy

  8. Haunting is the word that comes to mind when I saw this latest work. You do digital so well! And the message conveys the same haunting, tortured effect.
