look up high
white on blue

surrendering
to the currents
a mini cloud
plucked
and adrift

lifted
i am

When I was a little girl, I would always dream of flying...just like the elephant over the flowers!

Once again an amazing collection on a theme. I love the last painting by wonderful place.

Birdman is great. Reminds me of the annual birdman competition flying into the Yarra here in Mebourne.

I sometimes like to imagine what a different place the world would be if we could fly. Imagine the earth with no roads. What a delight!

I think you're just about the only person whos writing makes my brain focus :)

Chrisy! I got my parcel today and it is beautiful. I especially love the print! And everything else too! Thank you so much. It is wet and miserable here and I was feeling sick and blue....and then came a little miracle from you :)

Thank you lovely lady

What a lot of fun!
I remember swinging on my swing as a child and thinking I would just jump off and fly away.....

Hey Harriet said...

I think I'm a little bit in love with that piece by Wonderful Place!

This is such a sweet post. How joyous it would be to fly like a bird. And to also be able to poo on the heads of not so nice people would be an added bonus ;D

Your artwork is so beautiful Chrisy, I adore 'learning to fly' and 'fly penguin' especially but they are all so gorgeous.
I have just been and seen your'easter Hangings' and am thrilled that you joined in on the art freebies challenge. Thank you for doing that and for sharing your beautiful work. The easter hangings are so unusual and so beautiful. I will add a pic to the gallery and a link to your blog
Hugs from June xxx

Chrisy, you make me want to snap on my wings and soar up in the heavens. Wouldn't that be great? Maybe not in today's weather, though.

I still have flying dreams!
I love this post and I'm glad it evolved!

Rain said...

I think the birdman and the flying money is my favorite. You have such fantastic taste going on over here!

Thanks for participating in DIY Monday. We'll see you next week?

wonderful! so many of us can relate to the dreams of flight...it definitely sets our imagination soaring.
Only last night my two year old was saying that one day she will "fly like a superhero and catch that baby moon."
