These images are part of Deanna's collection entitled "Take Flight". It represents overcoming our fears, trying something new, and not being afraid to fail. This collection is Deanna's first attempt using watercolor, a medium which was previously not known to her. Each creation began with a graphite drawing, then watercolor and inks were added.
The theme of birds helps represent the feelings of bravery, courage and just going for it. Birds don't think about taking flight, they just do it; never once imagining that they won't be successful, or that they will fail.
Originals still available, as are limited edition prints. There is a special mini-reproduction package that includes all 19 images in a postcard sized format. Fantastic idea if you can't choose a favorite!
