WINGS OF LOVE
Acrylic Painting, Mixed Media + Collage
“Only from the heart can you touch the sky” Rumi
I am a bit heart crazy and love painting hearts in my work, sometimes hidden and sometimes visible. I also love looking for heart rocks on my walks, or just finding random heart shapes wherever I go. I feel like it’s a bit of magic when I find them!
My winged heart piece is symbolic for a few reasons, to me, it’s expressing my freedom to love, wings to soar with whatever or whomever I love as well as allowing my heart to always be open. One of my favorite quotes from the poet Rumi is “Only from the heart can you touch the sky”. Isn’t that amazing? So simple and perfect.
Join me as I walk you through this “Wings of Love” class step-by-step, and at any time feel free to change up the color palette or create your shapes. The most important thing is to let that creative spirit soar when you are playing with all the papers, pencils, and paint!

And, always stay true to the colors that you love. All my lessons can easily be done in a color palette of your choosing. I am listing options for supplies as well – some are more expensive than others so I want to make sure you know that there are different brands out there for the same thing.
