November 15th, 2008

I started playing with ink on wet watercolor paper, let it dry and then looked to see what I saw in the patterns. I saw a flying girl. When I began to draw her, she made me think of the story of Peter Pan when the children fly out the window. So, I'm calling her, "Wendy."

I spent the day with my dad and step-mom, having a delicious lunch and great conversation and now I'm rather zonked, so I'm going to leave it at that for tonight. More tomorrow!

It sounds like you had a lovely time with your dad and step-mum. :)

I absolutely adore this – you’ve really caught the feeling of being able to fly – one of my very best fantasies!

I really like this. I love the colors and the flying Wendy. It’s an interesting technique too. I’ll have to add it to my “to try” list. :) Thanks for sharing it.

Gorgeous! So inky. I love it.

What a wonderful way of letting the image come to light through patterns, and the perfect title too! so pretty :o )

Wow you are amazing. Your creativity knows no boundaries. This is absolutely gorgeous and once again its packed with movement. Hugs from Desire

Wendy is so fairy-like. What magic will she make? I am sure she is a muse for the week. Making magic with ink. That’s what I think. I love her. Peter Pan was the first play my Aunt Madelyn took me to me see when I was 7. It was so nice.

oooh, this is very cool. I like her little punk rock hair do, like she’s been with the lost boys for a little while now. we should play together soon, kay?

This turned out beautifully!!

Ooh! I love this one, and I love the way you created it. I never would have thought of something like that. Awesome!

Very lovely . . .
