Let Your Dreams Take Flight

"Let Your Dreams Take Flight"  (Mixed Media)  © C. Eastwood, 2012
As explained in the post about "Big Engines,"  this is the 8" x 8" mixed media painting for Maddie, Andrew's big sister, who turned three this Spring.  Maddie has an abundance of energy which her very wise mother is letting her burn off in dance and gymnastics.  I believe it's important for every child to dream and pretend, so I wanted to do a painting that showed these two activities carried out to the next level.  Whether Maddie stays with dancing or gymnastics in the future, the message will always be the same -- to let her dreams take flight and carry her to new heights of discovery and joy.
