Winged Inspiration

I love Celtic music and had a chance to attend a music event called Faerieworlds, just outside of Portland, Oregon. Just imagine the potential for magical inspiration! I was not disappointed. Picture a forested setting next to a lake, almost everyone in some sort of fairyland costume. There were elves, fairies, mermaids and pirates. Vendors with everything from silk fairy wings to barbeque turkey legs for sale.
I loved the "Dream Tree" where streamers with paper and clothes pins were used to post your dreams. 

My biggest fascination was the inventiveness of the wings.....

I had my camera and sketchbook on hand and came away with some great imagery. 

We sat under the stars and watched dancers in costume moving to the music. 
It was MAGIC!
