Artist's Description

SOLD: One card of this image, Feb 2011.

Self portrait of sorts….I was thinking about all the children’s portraits I’ve done where I’ve given them wings, and how that has always been a dream of mine, both literally and figuratively speaking. Ever since I was a child, in my dreams, whenever things turn bad, I always fly myself off to safety. I was thinking of how both my girls have a portrait in their bedrooms of them, as fairies in a fantasy world, done by me, and how I hope that whenever they feel low in their lives, whenever they doubt their dreams can ever come true, that looking at their portraits of them with wings will remind them that they can fly, they can do anything, be anything. It occurred to me that I myself could do with the same reminder from time to time.

This is my reminder to myself. :)

Canon Powershot A480 point and shoot for all textures and images used, except the lace texture which was generously offered by someone here some months ago – unfortunately I saved it without saving the name of the owner and cannot remember who it was to credit it! Please, if you see this image and recognise your texture, BM me and I’ll credit it properly!

Proudly New Zealand-made. :)
