“I am the Goose, the mysterious guardian of migrations everywhere. I am the soul who travels. I am the quest within. If you are stagnating today, it may be time to seek warmer pastures. It may be the call to a journey, the same journey that marks the beginning of every great story ever told. I may inspire a road trip, or open your eyes to those wide open spaces on the other side of the fence. But whichever ways I lead you, you will never return home the same.” ~Lesley Morrison, Co-creator of Winged Enchantment Oracle (to be published by U.S. Games Systems)
With goose-shapeshifter, once I started painting, it was hard to stop because I feel I’m in the painting—I am the feathers, I am the sky, I am the eyes watching. It’s a total commitment of being that requires one’s full mental absorption. Once “in the zone” I alight and shed the debris of disarrangement. With each feather I detail, I feel intensely focused and indescribably free.
On the table:
This is one of those pieces that took a while to bring to fruition. As I sketched it out, I felt a disconnect. So I put it away until inspiration brought the drawing to life. Sometimes time is required to help ameliorate potential mental blocks. I feel art is an exercise of the senses and good art requires that we employ these senses without obstructions. Sometimes it flows, sometimes it doesn’t. I prefer to wait until it flows.
