Illustration Friday: journey


I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine

On a cloud of sound I drift in the night

Any place it goes is right

Goes, far, flies near, to the stars away from here


Well you don't know what we can find

Why don't you come with me little girl

on a magic carpet ride

You don't know what we can see

Why don't you tell your dreams to me

Fantasy will set you free

Close your eyes girl

Look inside girl

Let the sound take you away

LOL a much more innocent rendition representing that song than the image that was once stimulated!

Hey Val! Wow the colors and the sky make this dreamy :o) I’ve always liked the song... now I’ll like it more because your painting will come to mind. Superb my friend!

Hi Valerie! Thank you for your magical poem. This session is great and shall not forget in my life time. Love the white fairy horse and magic carpet giving us more imagination and ventures into the real fairy world.

Love,love,
