I Am Ready to Fly

a picture from Fairyland

i am ready to fly
and the wind is with me …

The lovely painting was inside an old book called ‘Fairyland’ by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. I found in the shearing shed at my grandmother’s farm when it was cleaned up for sale in 2014. The book was badly damaged and only a few paintings were good enough to cut out and paste into my sketchbook. Reprinted here with love. The flowers and weeds were hand picked in the Estancia cemetery after I took Jerry to visit his mother.
