Caged by lonelynightmares Caged by lonelynightmares
I didn't really have an initial concept for this one. Looking at it again I suppose it's a metaphor for having wings but being unable to use them. The cage is the things that trap us and hold us back; it's possible to fly. I'm in the process of leaving my own self imposed cage. I've had wings all along. Now I'm going to use them.


This ATC was made for WordsAreMyWeakness' Love Yourself For Art 2010 contest.

More and more people need to learn how to use their
wings. Including me. This picture is another reminder of the good things that can happen if you
just decide to break yourself free

This is such a beautiful card!!! Even more stunning in person.

Also - typically the idea of a caged bird is a sad thing. But I really liked the way you put it - realizing you've had wings all along.
