Can you hear me now???

We have all heard that phrase so many times, it's part of our culture now.  I had a quiet whisper that I didn't even know I ignored.  Maybe it wasn't a whisper yet,  just an inner stirring??

I started this collage on canvas during a class with Jen Starr before I purchased Kelly Rae's book, or knew about Flying Lessons ;-)  Now I look at it and know why I never finished - I wasn't ready yet.  This must have been some internal knowing that I was about to spread my wings and really learn how to FLY.   It was only a "whisper" then.....but now I gaze at it every day and smile at the beautiful wings.  I will finish it with pieces of my journey along the way.

What are your whispers saying today?  Not just the big loud whisper, but the little ones that you can barely hear.  If we could all hear them, what  would we hear them saying??


  1. I like the way your blog is laid out with all these pages ready for content. you are an inspiration!

  2. Linda, my little whispers have always said,"make art..make art.." But as we all know sometimes life gets in the way..and sometimes as you said it has lots to do with not being ready...

    Love to see you 'flying high'
    Cheers! xx

  3. That is really something how it is all coming together. Beautiful art! I just posted on whispers too. They must be getting a little louder these days.

  4. That's funny, I guess the same thing happened to me the first time I saw Kelly's book. It didn't seem right for me, and I just wasn't interested. I guess I wasn't ready. But then I decided to go for it and take her class, and a week or so into it, I was dying to get her book! Now I've read it cover to cover. I'm so glad I took her class.

  5. This is beautiful! Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I'm happy that you were brave and hit the play button on my slideshow. The story brings tears to my eyes but I also see the beauty of life.
