Gorgeous art on a practical bag. Thank you, my talented friend, for helping me add a bit of magic to the everyday! Just the grownup upgrade I needed from hauling my stuff around in my boring grocery tote bags.

Artist's Description

This is a self portrait I completed last year as part of my 'Casting Call' show. In it I have given a face to the unseen sprites in my head! i have written a poem for this, I hope you enjoy! My idealistic inspiration, Comes from deep inside, That special place within me, Where my hopes and dreams reside. Perhaps my inspiration is given, By a lovely little sprite, Whose humorous ideas, Cause chuckles of delight. Maybe an angel will inspire, A thought provoking piece, Or guide me to the place, Where my heart will find release. My hands become the messenger, My heart, the guiding force, And love, the captain of my ship, Keeping me on my course.
