Inspiration comes in many forms and shapes. In Learning To Fly, Victor Bregeda goes on a metaphorical quest of searching for it. The chick that is hatching from the egg is the muse that is coming out of the creative soul of an artist. She is breaking free from her confinement and is spreading her wings to take on her first flight.

But wait, there is more. The chick is actually a swarm of magical flying creates. These creatures are Pegasus, winged divine horses finding their origin in Greek mythology and widely known as symbols of poetry and inspiration. The flying Pegasus make an elusive formation that can dissipate at any instant. Some of the horses are breaking away from the pack already. The volatility of this scene symbolizes the capriciousness of artistic mindset.

The stacked books and the feather quill serve as backdrop decorations that instill balance to the composition. In the end, Bregeda draws a conclusion of the story with a subtle clue. Down below in the shade of the giant eggshell, we see an artist who managed to tame his Pegasus. They are walking away together ready for a creative challenge.
