By far, my favorite quote from Tyler & Stella is a line I didn’t write–it’s the Oregon state motto, alis volat propriis, Latin for “she flies with her own wings.”
The symbolism of this becomes important to both Tyler and Stella in the course of their story, and so I asked my favorite artist to create an image of the ragged angel wings paired with this quote.
The full-sized canvas, created with both paint and an India ink wash, is incredible. I’m printing it for several of my most enthusiastic readers, who do so much to promote and share my books. I also added the English translation.
What do you think? Do you have a tattoo that is a quote, word or phrase?
