With this piece, I let the character lead the pencil, and it became a dreamlike one of releasing emotion. The wind that is blowing her hair, is also blowing back a couple tears across her face. But her face is strong, resilient, determined.... the forms in front of her are the energy she is releasing, she is freeing herself of some emotional anchor. It is said that if the flamingo appears either in your waking life or in your dream, it means that you should release your emotions and let them be your guidance in life. So, it made perfect sense for them to be accompanying her on this spiritual journey.
