Soar/Sore by Bonniemarie Soar/Sore by Bonniemarie
"I see at intervals a glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage; a vivid, restless, resolute captive is there; were it but free it would soar cloud-high."- Mr. Rochester
-Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

*In my drawing the bird pretty much represents the human spirit.. how it can be happy and free and soar to endless possibilities... but is stopped by our insecurities and fears.

We have a choice to either be free and happy or caged and defeated (this choice is represented by the fact that there is no door on the bird cage) but we are too fearful and indecisive.. leading to a sore and troubled heart.

Pencil colours

edit: Wowee my second DD thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou! :) :) :)

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. I actually cried while reading the part where Jane left Mr. Rochester.

Thankyou so much :) Yes that's kinda the idea.. the bird sort of represents the heart though (well our hearts in a spiritual sense). We have the choice to live free or in fear :)
