Study for Icarus

By Toni Cogdell

Original painting in oil on linen.

"What did Icarus know of flight? What do any of us know of leaping into a vast, unknowable sky, our faces lit up by the sun, skin dazzling, our feathers ragged and worn, with only dreams at our feet to hold us? We know nothing, but we can feel everything; the pull of that other life, the weight of the wings we long for. And with that comes the certainty that it is better to have launched ourselves headlong into our dreams than to have never dreamed at all."
