This is quite a personal image to me. I am scared of heights and I'd love to fly just so I won't have to be scared of falling. However, this is also a conceptual image, about the dangers involved in flying (free), hence the scissors, on the other hand flying is it's own reward (hence the keys). Anything we do has a cost and unfortunately nothing is free but too often we feel the dangers even before we get close to experiencing them.
Images from a disc of royalty free public domain vintage images, with my own photos and brushes and a few freebies mixed it, all coloured and mashed up by me.
I'd love to know what you thought about the image, so drop me a line or leave a comment. :-)
