Buddha-licious

I know I seem like a slacker, but,
I have been busy.
I have made some Buddha boxes...


These buggers take me forever it seems.
I also finished (and sent) 
my pages for Maggie's book.
I know you saw some of this in different stages...

Originally, I did a self-portrait behind the mica window...

But nobody knew it was me...
Mia thought it was John Lennon.
Which I chose to take as a compliment,
but pasted the other Frida on top.
And cut the page.

And ended up doing more than my share of the book.


In the end...I feel it is a self portrait of sorts.
Here are Frida and Van Gogh and Klimt.
And Cummings.
And Mary.

You will be seeing more of this Mary...
Mother of Mercy.

I am working on a few different pieces with her.
So I will be redundant.
Some more.
So, thanks Maggie,
for letting me practice in your book.

Friday will be a give-away day.

I just have to turn it into a haiku.
Double-tasking.
Over-thinking.
Under-doing.

I ♥Love♥ you!!!
Lisa

  3. Oh my!!! I am so blessed that this is my book! I feel like squealing! And jumping up and down!

    These pages are too wonderful for words, and I thank you, Lisa, for making this beautiful art for me!!! I couldn't even pick a favorite page, but Mary is so other-worldly and beautiful ~ truly Full of Grace. I'm in awe of her.

    I can't wait (although I will have to) to see this in real life!

    Lots o' love,
    Maggie

  12. Ooh gorgeous boxes Lisa, I've loved all the ones you've made before but Buddhas are a special favourite!

    And your journal pages are ... well, stunning. I think all art turns out to be a kind of self-portrait and those pages are full of your heart and soul. I'm already excited to see what you'll create in my journal! x

  15. Gorgeous journal pages - Maggie is a lucky lady. They are so full of heart and meaning. I could get lost looking at them and pondering on the words and meanings. Wonderful!

    Thank you for your kind comments on my journal pages today. I was so nervous of it being a mess. I've already edited my words in my head but I think I like the general gist and may try making more art with those words as I hope people may beable to relate to the sentiment.

    Thanks for organising this round robin - it is special sharing with you girls.

    Big Hugs
