The Creative Spirit

Aside from the obvious theme of this vintage postcard, I was fascinated by it's similarities to my own nature. I'm not a painter, but I am compelled to create. Rarely, can I touch a thing without transforming it somehow: taking ownership, signing my name to it.

Had this furry friend been painted as is, the finished product would have, no doubt, been charming. However, imagination gave this model a role to play, as well as a story that will be translated differently by each one of us.
