She Leaps (fillip)


leaping with spring
enlivens one's spirit

~
there are many meanings:

enliven, flip, excites, stimulates
flick, spur,  and so on....

I was going to draw a fairy flipping through the air
but when i sat to draw.... 
it was as if the fairy played a joke on me,
I totally forgot my original idea!

you see there just is no controlling what a fairy wants to do!
if she must leap, then leap she must ;-)

but i can play and flip the art ;-)


two meanings:
flip and enliven

  1. What a lovely, graceful drawing. I also totally enjoyed your poetry and thoughts. (Heehee) There is an almost Art Nouveau feel to this piece. Which, of course, fills my eyes to the brim.

  32. Spring must be so stunning at your little cottage in the woods... it must unfurl and inspire you constantly... love the energy of your fairy!!!

  33. very good, the fairy made ​​a joke to you, but with an artist not joke
    an artist with his pencil can do whatever you want, (you could draw the fairy with a big nose, for example)
    I liked your post, and thank you for your comment!!
