"The way you make me feel! You really turn me on ..." lines from a song going through my head as I painted - at the same time as hearing some really good news about a group of my colleagues - female sportswomen. I was imagining strength and achievement that they were experiencing, as well as the simply wonderful sensual idea of feeling good about being a woman.
So here is a woman about to take off, rise above the clouds... happy in her skin.

A note on framing: I've been asked by a few people who've purchased from this series which way I would suggest framing and I have to say that it might be an idea, instead of having a regular window mount, is to have the paper 'floated' to show off the edge and then a window mount around that. I know it would add to the frame size, but the edge of this lovely paper is one of its features.
