SWEEPING THE STARS


"If goats had longer tails they could sweep the stars clean."
~African Proverb

I must say that this proverb has haunted(in a good way)and enchanted me sine I first stumbled upon it.

I'm compelled to write it, repeat it, imagine it, dream it and my fingers ache to collage it.

It is, in a simple sentence, everything that goats are to me.

Thank you for allowing me to share.

If anyone should have the desire to artistically render this proverb, be it any medium (art, story, song, photo, collage, sky's the limit!) I would so love if you would share with me.

Have a wonderfully creative Spring day!

I have a mental image of what I'd like to draw for this one (and I bought several T-Shirts and transfer!). It's coming together...
