Surrender

...is the prompt this week at Illustration Friday

 
"Art is nothing but the expression of our dream; the more we surrender to it the closer we get to the inner truth of things, our dream-life, the true life that scorns questions and does not see them." ~ Franz Marc


I think that Mrs Tipple (above) and her Russian Blue are as one in their dream life and true life...
something I aspire to, it reminds me of the below quote with 'Dusty' the sea dragon by T.E Lawrence, which I percieve to be about living your dream and being awake in life ...
or maybe I'm completely off track.
wishing you a great week
