My Wings Are Strong

The challenge over at Three Muses today is to create a piece of artwork with wings and here is my entry, a new page in my Zetti-inspired journal. Aside from a hand-colored head from Dover and a collaged collar, the entire piece is hand-drawn. This little lady seems very confident in her wings (and her stylist). I will try and learn something from her.

Oh Wow! You have just blown me away! This is an amazing piece of art. I am searching for superlatives. I love your stunning creativity in producing such a work and I love the sentiments expressed in your journaling. They certainly give everyone pause for thought on the idea of seeing life in terms of wings - strong and otherwise. Standing ovation from me.

Like others have said, this is stunning, - both your artwork and your thoughts are inspirational.
I am a teacher of both adults and children, your thoughts have given me lots of inspiration for my work. It's not so much the "what" but the way you put it!!

I'm wonder if you draw this by using a Wacom Michelle.
Or did you do that on paper and scanned it ?
I'm just curious because i find this such a brilliant technique !
