“and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” Roald Dahl
This favorite quote hangs over my illustration table for daily inspiration.It is a reminder to always be wonderstruck by the world around me. After all, I am a grown up, can’t help that. It happens as a natural event. But, being a grown up does not mean stop growing, stop learning, stop being amazed by the world around us.
How lucky I am to be an illustrator and painter of whimsy and wonder because even in the most fantastical project there is an element of truth. Research must be done to understand the whys and wherefores.
So, my wish for you this wonderous day is that you believe in magic. That you walk through your day watching with glittering eyes. Find some secrets today.
Next week the Dragon Project will be here.
