This post will have lots of pictures
and little narration,
a sort of picture-book story
of my life these past few weeks.
Since it is Monday,
I will start with
We saw this shrine close to the edge of the road.
Naturally we had to stop and look.
It is a road we often travel,
so it must be new, surely I would have noticed it before...how wonderful!
... also wonderful...a surprise in the mail!
These vibrant hand-made prayer flags from my artist friend
the next day...
the mailbox had another surprise...
from a different Kim-friend!
These Mary, Queen of Angels cards,
Be Strong was the first card I drew after blessing them.
They are really beautiful cards,
I draw one before I begin working.
As you can see, I am working on a lot of things at once....
something I don't usually do,
I prefer to finish one thing before beginning another.
This art journal belongs to a friend...
we have a very relaxed way of working and sending.
It's just between the two of us,
so no deadlines, no boundaries.
I found all of these Infant of the Prague statues
in the Goodwill Thrift Shop!
I could barely contain my glee!!
The most wonderful things happen to me all of the time...
like these roses from our garden...
and this whiskey barrel fountain~
a gift from our neighbors.
Life is grand, is it not?
Last week we marched on the State Capitol steps
It is always up-lifting to know
there are people like you in the world.
Mia is graduating from her dance company this month.
The final concert is Sleeping Beauty.
I had to make 2 advertisements for the program.
One for the Barbershop:
and one for Priti Studio:
I am not ashamed to say
it took me one entire day to create these.
I have a lot of respect for graphic artists,
it ain't easy!
I have also been painting...
but I will save that for another day.
I hope your life is
over-flowing with wonderfull-ness too.
I believe if you concentrate on the good,
it will soon over-shadow the unpleasant.
