I admit that my feet are firmly planted on the ground -- carefully taking life one small step at a time.  Sometimes I'm running, sometimes I'm walking and sometimes it feels like I'm crawling.  But this coming year I have determined to take flight -- even it only means starting out by hopping or skipping.  Perhaps I'll actually graduate to soaring before the year is over.

This wall hanging is my first attempt with no boundaries.  The name "Earthbound" came to me as I was working on it because I can see that I myself am still earthbound. But it seems a good first start on my quest.

I take a moment to thank  Barbara at PinelandsTreasures for gifting me with this lovely charm.  The brushed metal seems to go quite beautifully with the colors on this piece.

Okay, I'm off to polish up my wings and see what happens next.

  1. This is so gorgeous. And the charm really works well! Wonderful!

  2. I love the earthy feel of this piece. Earthy is not the same as being earthbound. I think its Earthy.

    OK! You can fly and I'll be up there with you!

  3. Remember if you've never been earthbound, you won't appreciate soaring... I'm sure you'll get there!

  4. Oh, Penny, this piece is absolutely STUNNING!!! I love the colours, love the embellishments... I can't wait to see more!!!

  5. Penny, this is beautiful! I always love your colors, and to see how perfectly the charm matches is a delight. I also notice how well it goes with the other metal pieces. I believe your imagination is already soaring, so at least that part of you isn't Earthbound!

  6. This is amazing!! Love all the textures in your work. The earth tones are wonderful. I'd say you will be soaring this year!

  7. Very nice work, but also thank you for sharing your inner thoughts, very helpful for me at this moment of my life..
