DC: Folds


 unfolding her wings 
she took flight


she folded her eyelid over her eye
a bit of a wink
yet with her tears slowly cascading down her check
it was a mix of sweet sad and alluring

  4. Oh Tammie Lee, this is fantastic. What I love about bloggers is that we are ALIVE because we are creating. So many fun challenges, so many fun ideas where we all connect in some way. And thank you so much for coming to visit and sharing your comment. It really is uplifting to know that the things I love are shared by others such as you.

    It's snowing here! I suppose you too are getting at least that blast of cold air! ENJOY with something hot to drink and a roaring fire if you can! Anita

  12. I used to do that at high speed on figure skates and it did feel like an unfolding of wings and flying. Your illustrations are always so sweet Tammie. I love them, and this one in particular. (Wonder if I can still get a good height in a spiral? I'll try it next time I'm on the ice.)

  13. catch the spirit, i'll say. the elegance never leaves your drawings! and thank you, tammie, for your understanding words on alone-ness. it is a great comfort in creating, to realize i am not alone when being alone. there is always all of you, going through similar processes. n♥

  18. The drawer is in the dancing position herself and can make those figures herself wit her own body.

  19. What original paintings for the theme "Folds".
    The girl is poised - any second she will take off, I'm watching.
    Folded her eyelid - a bit sad, but she has little flowers in her hair, I think she will be alright.

  20. Beautiful and so full of grace! I love her pose. She's like a ballerina, delicate yet strong. And your wonderful sad lady will hopefully not be sad much longer. If I had her eyelashes, I would bat them all day long. :)

  21. Such a creative interpretation. Love the simplicity and line work of that beautiful face. It has a really strong design element which I like very much.x
