Day 303

Since I had a really interesting week, putting myself out there and taking chances I decided for today's creativity to make a pair of earrings similar to the ones I had made in June with the crystals from the chandelier. My sister loved them so much (the had green accent swarovski crystals) she took them! So here is my treat, I love them!

Venetia :D

The emotions keep on taking over the drawings. I hope this weekend I will be able to put some of these on canvas.

Day 297

As change approaches I second guess myself, even though I have solid proof that my gut has not failed me with its warnings. I feel so nervous...

Day 296

I have been very emotional this week, for many reasons but mostly for letting go of control. Oh well...  More lessons to learn.
Today's watercolor represents my emotion on trust.

Day 294

Finished the Grapes pendant. Baked fimo with one layer of gloss top. It looks gorgeous when the light hits it, sparkles and the red pops, but if not directly hit by light it looks dark. Next time I will have to incorporate a lighter background.

Day 292

Today I went to a viewing of a dear friend who was like a second mother to sis and I. She looked peaceful and surrounded by family. When life brings you face to face with  fears that you have to confront, it is tough to be in the creative mood. So today's drawings are dedicated to Ms Viola. This is how I feel spirit manifests after it frees itself from the bondage of the body. Light, airy and ready for flight.

fly away
May you look down on us with the same love you did while alive, and put in a good word for all of us with the big boss up there. You will be missed.

Day 287

Today I got up early and watched the sunrise. Came home after 6 and my stomach has been hurting ever since - the pain interferes with my creativity.

Day 286

The other day while at the bus stop i kept on staring at the tree and the shadow it cast on the building across the street. What a better subject when the weather is so yucky.

Day 285

Happy Birthday to my lovely sis @StardustLuna . After the parents anniversary on Sunday and Sis's bday today, the house was filled with flowers and cards. Some of the roses from Sunday started to wilt and I wanted to capture them, as they still looked beautiful.

Day 284

As I was walking back home on this beautiful fall day I saw a tree that triggered my memory
One fall late afternoon in 1996 I was walking on the WestChester University campus going to class when I saw a girl with deep red hair wearing black and black sunglasses sitting under a tree that had fall colors that matched her hair, with fallen leaves in the same palette. The richness of the colors were amplified by the rich colors of the fall sunset. And of course the rays hit her just the right way. There were no cool cell phones then and I didn't carry a camera with me, so I could only take a mental snap shot. I have sketched this scene and painted it hundreds of times with not getting close to it...
That is until today. This is the study of : Changing leaves

Day 282

The Parents had a wonderful anniversary and both loved the gifts. We had lunch together and they went out to celebrate with some friends for dinner. As the day was winding down I got this feeling that changes are just around the corner. I tend to not like changes, so I started getting nervous. I can't pinpoint what these are, but  I am taking the steps to accept them. So lots of tapping coming up this week to work through the fear or the unknown and lots of positive thinking....
In the vortex
and as Abraham-Hicks says..i just have to think myself in the vortex.

Day 281

Tomorrow is my parents 45th wedding anniversary. And mom this morning said that she didnt have a chance to get out and get something for dad, since she spends all day taking care of sis, and she asked if I could do something.  I ended up finally using the metal punch kit, so I punched happy anniversary on a copper sheet. I didn't do too much to the frame as i wanted it to stay masculine (though put the feminine touch of hearts) in case dad wants to take it to the office. I also played around with an image transfer technique, that worked ok, but then again i did use inkjet printouts... ahem.   Long story short I put the picture on a funky glass so they can use it with tea light candles. I didn't realize but it works like a cling-on. So you can move from the glass and place it on any glass surface.
