"Forget Me Not"

Gosh so much to blog about & not enough time...I've still yet to blog about the little girls monograms that I've completed af few weeks ago.... & there's another piece that I finally completed, she was one of those works that I kept going back & for with... & a logo for all things, a boy scouts camp! It's really a wonderful piece that I can't wait to share.  Like I said, busy !!!

But here I'm going to blog about "Forget Me Not".  She was completed right after I did "Pure".  I felt like she needed a companion. I loved her from the moment the pencil hit the paper till completion of the piece...it's just one of those times when you start a piece of art & then from start to finish with no problems, no issues, she just appeared, done, like magic !

I hope to visit everyone really very soon...inspiration is everywhere ! xoxo

A Most Cherished Work of Art :)

011

Last night, as I was so wrapped up with etsy stuff & blogging & other things on the computer, my baby brought me this picture she drew at school (she's 6 & still my baby, lol)... She's always drawing me pictures of course & between her & her brother, I'm really running out of room to put them all! But this one, oh my goodness, in every sense of the phrase...truly "touched my heart!"

So naturally, I want to share it with all of you :) I've always said, it's the *meaning* behind a drawing or painting that makes a work of art truly special....

Cheers for a most wonderful & magical weekend!

~ Wall Flower ~

I had to say goodbye to my * Wall Flower * yesterday. If you remember, I did her as a piece during our fabulous "Summer of Color" with our wonderful Kristin.. This was, (I think for the second week) "Green".

I've talked about it on here before, but as you all know, I very rarely add, if not ever used to add color to my drawings.  So needless to say that  the summer of color was truly a challenge, yet so very inspirational to me! So many wonderful artists & now proud to call *friend* really truly inspired me to invite color into my drawings. & now I can proudly say, that I love color & welcome it with open arms...

So anyway, here she is....my * Wall Flower * I really can't believe that she's gone. It's one thing doing commissioned work, you're creating it for that special someone.  But this was different, that special someone was *me*... & all of you too, for all you inspired me during this past summer. So I dedicate this post to all the magical people who have supported my art since starting this little venture of mine...  You have to believe in the magic, & all your dreams will come true.

~ Pure ~

She's done and I've called her simply "Pure" as when I look at her, I see all that is good and pure in the world. I'm in love with her... I think I have a new favorite piece :)
