WOYWW: Pass it on!

Whoa! Serious disaster zone! 
Caution! caution! Do NOT cross this yellow line! 
Work in progress: Bloom! 
Another work in progress 
(no name yet, because I have
no idea what it will look like in the end!)
I am just making marks on the background.
My dad says if you have an interesting background,
half your painting is made!

I have a new journal and 
my pages aren't brown anymore.
Makes a nice change I think! 
I bought several little sketch pads, 
removed the covers and 
sewed it on a piece of leather I cut
from an old dress I found in an ukay ukay 
(that's filipino for vintage!)

And here's what's on my journal for today:
a verse from Deuteronomy 4:
"However, take care and be earnestly
on your guard not to forget
the things your own eyes have seen,
nor let them slip from  your memory
as long as you live,

How important it is to pass on to our children
what we have learned! 
If we don't, it is like we have a treasure
that we don't share with them,
but just keep to ourselves! 

Joining the lovely Julia for a 
peek at desks and projects!

I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

  11. Lovely work going on here! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I'm so happy to see that someone else's creative space looks a lot like mine! Your artwork is so inspiring - a true gift! -diane

  13. I see the beginnings of some lovely pages.

  14. Uhm, how come your "disaster" looks so artsy while mine is just a pile of 8-1/2 x 11 papers? If I'm brave I'd take a picture of my desk and post it on my blog. Alas, I'm not. :)
    (Thanks for visiting the other day, by the way.)

  15. From chaos grows beauty. I love the unnamed piece - something about her hair falling in her face (vs. the neat and tidy look like "Bloom"... which is also quite nice).

  33. i love that verse! it's etched in my heart. sometimes, because i am zealous about the treasure i found, i overwhelm them. i need to be careful to share with caution knowing that an important thing about treasure is finding rather than shoving.

  34. How late am I?!
    Love the look of your desk actually, loaded with colour and telling the tale of your inspiration! More than one piece at a time is a skill!

  35. That's a lot of color and creativity. Love your paintings! Barb #90

  36. I'm having a terrible time getting Blogger to cooperate with me. Sorry I'm late. I really LOVE all that color on your desk. And the gal on my bookcase is my best friend's daughter. She's my heart!


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
