|Alis volat suo|

So this January has me creating a lot of art with wings. I am slightly obsessed.
I think it is because I like the idea of flying free from all the crap that happened last year.
And, I was also flitting through the pintrest boards and found a tattoo with the words "she flies with her own wings" written in latin - Alis volat suo. [the latin according to google translate.]
So simple. So true. So what I aspire to do. Fly with my own wings - a more whimsical way of saying she walks to the beat of her own drum.
I think its time. Time to shake of others' wings, and don my own. And perhaps time to get my first bit of body ink!
Anyway, I just love this painting. She immediately went up on my wall (she's approx an A2 size - not sure what that is in cms or inches + I will start adding dimensions), but she just totally resonates with me.
So I would love to know if you have been inspired by a tattoo, or art work to change, or act? I would love to know.
P.S I have some close ups in my facebook gallery if you would like to see more detail. x
