Haiku my Heart♥

Season of wonders
Peace is the absence of time
Forgotten Garden

These are some of Gemma's Angels
I painted in her Art Journal.

This is book is part of our
and Gemma's book is all about purple.
That was a real challenge for me
as purple is not a color I ever use and 
my discomfort 
made me struggle.
And I wanted to make very special pages
because Gemma is so dear to me.
At one point I started to cry with frustration...
as I sometimes do
when the magic isn't happening.
I finally said to myself,
And the book is packed and on it's way to the UK.

Speaking of Britain,
There is a video at the bottom of this post...
you will be awe-struck, I promise.


join Rebecca and friends for Haiku my Heart


  1. I agree - Purple is such a difficult color to use.. I can imagine the frustration you felt sometimes - I have that too and yes, that can move me to tears also. I LOVE your portraits and art journal page, and the video is awesome! Have a nice weekend!

  2. Believe me magic happened! Sarah and Ruthie are angels on my team. Stunned to tears by your inspiration. Haiku my heart.
    Seriously LOVE so much.

  3. Your art journaling, especially portraits, create awe in me. And what a gift to add to Gemma's art journal. . . expressing the power of collaboration and connection.

  4. I am speechless, and my eys are filled with tears. Sure, the video was awesome, but YOU are the star of this show. You are a wonderful human being and fill our hearts with your words and images.

    Peace, Love and Hugs sent your way

  5. I just love the challenge that the different colours pose. White was really tough. This is lovely though, so personal. I can't wait for it to come my way!

  6. oh, I do so love purple; I'm glad you were able to reconcile your aversion. wondrous haiku!
    I watched the video. At the beginning I got goosebumps, then I cried. what an outstanding troupe of performers, hard to believe it was all done with the silhouettes of their bodies!

  7. Lisa, your angels are lovely and I love the picture of the two of you and the words. I am sure Gemma will appreciate all of the love you put into her book.

    The video was so moving. Just lovely. I'd like to post that on my facebook wall. How do I do that?

    Hugs! Have a super lovely weekend.

  8. I think I figured out how to post it. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece of art with us.

  9. Oh how amazing! Thanks so much for sharing. Your art is as incredible as ever and so full of meaning and that video (!) brought tears to my eyes. I am a little worried now, cause you get my journal next and will once again be forced to play with purple....sorry ;)

  10. This is an amazing post! From your haiku to the wonderful video! And I love how you used the purple!

  11. Oh my. Gemma will be so pleased.
    Don't cry, your purple is perfect!
    And beautiful, beautiful haiku!

  18. I love your purple pages Lisa, your tears whilst you were making them were unnecessary! Your angels with flowers in their hair are truly beautiful! I have an angel of my very own that you painted in my last journal and she makes me happy whenever I see her. The picture of you and Gemma and the caption made me smile - you both look very happy and at ease in each others' company :) x

    That's all I have to say!
