From CREATIVE BLOOM by Jennifer Swift
From the author:
It’s surprising to me how strong a connection I feel toward certain images. One that I use repeatedly in my work is the heart. It’s a symbol important to so many people, speaking to them of love or passion. It can represent kindness or compassion, or it can speak to you of your dreams and aspirations.
My scribble heart with wings represents my artist’s soul, free and able to fly. It can soar into the clouds or skim the edge of the ocean, wherever my dreams lead it. I think of it as my talisman. It hangs in my studio, and as I work it reminds me I am allowing my heart to fly free through my art.
You can personalize your scribble heart by including symbols, fabrics, quotes or anything else you feel describes who you are. Make your heart meaningful to you.Then hang it in your home as a visible and potent representation of your artist’s heart.
