Taking Flight...

"She wasn't where she had been, she wasn't where she was going, but she was on her way. Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly...." Upon arriving to this residence in Austin, Texas you feel like you are part of nature, wild with delight, far away from civilization. The image is showing a female musician. One feels inspired in her presence. She has accomplished so much for one lifetime. Her rich history, personality and musical creations are a combined expression of a complex person who lives a remarkable life. Being an artist myself, I understand the need for the deep breath of the outdoors, exhaling all the woes of the day. Quiet solitude... finding inspiration to fuel your work. The shoot was a magical retreat where nature and art become one.
