I often tell Freya how her words evoke a creativity that prompts me to pick up the brush. Her stories elevate my senses like a curious child. I think we all experience that same wonder and marvel of reading a novel, a poem or a short story from a writer whose words affect our lives in a profound way.
Wanting to stretch my creativity as well as thank my author friend for her inspirational words, I offered to create an artwork for the cover of her latest Clippings. She wrote an Elfje and from that I painted like the words sing to me.
