When I first read Emily's prompt for Week 4 "a symbol you love" I just gulped. I had absolutely NO idea what to do.
I resorted to searching the internet to find symbols to give me some inspiration and on 1 of the sites I came across it listed "Unicorns".
Now I love horses, I used to work with them years ago and as a child my dream was to own a horse. I could never understand why mum and dad hadn't bought me one for Christmas. Ha ha, now a little older and a lot wiser (ooh, no, I think that should be the other way round) I have obviously come to realise that it was far beyond their financial reaches and never in a million years would they buy me a horse.
Anyway, I digress slightly.....my passion for horses meant I had a passion for all things "horsey" and Unicorns come into that category, hence, why I picked a Unicorn for this weeks challenge.
Unicorns symbolize innocence and purity of heart. Although I certainly don't claim innocence I would like to think that my heart is in the right place and hopefully that is how it will remain. The unicorn also helps to bring peace, gentleness, courage, inner wisdom and healing.............all great things in my book.
This one is, again, hand drawn and painted and I am so enjoying painting again. I used to love painting animals, dogs and horses in particular and I starting to realise just how much I have missed it. Sorry that the photo isn't marvellous, I often have to photograph stuff after dark and it just doesn't work so well under artificial light.
I must just also show you some fabby 3D paints that my super, duper mum bought me. She got me the Crystal ones for Christmas and then we popped into the local art shop in town and they had a HUGE display of these things in all sorts of finishes so mum bought me 4 metallic ones too. They are fabbidoo!!!
Take care all.
