Pink Artist Drawing 2009

This post is about two things. First, helping support a beautiful project started by Monica of Girl Gone Thread Wild. And, second, about me trying to get a bit more involved in something other than myself. I recently visited Michelle's 3rd Eye Muse blog and was so amazed at all of the places she has donated her work and efforts to. (scroll down the left side of her blog and you will start to see group project one after another) I know a lot of my blog friends donate their work and time and effort and money, but while looking at her blog it really struck me that I should give back a bit more than I take. Something just hit me. So, this is a very small start in trying to get more involved and this particular piece is for Monica's Pink Artists Drawing.

Pretty in Pink

This is a 5 x 7 collage using a face from flickr's Suzee Que, a body from suppliestogo.etsy.com, feet from moonfaires.etsy.com, wings from greatmusings.com, flowers from keeperofthenest.etsy.com, and a small butterfly from Dover clipart. All of these pieces were reprinted, hand trimmed and hand colored with ink and pastels. The words were created by me and all was attached to a background made from a texture from flickr's JoesSistah.

When we give it just comes right back at us, it is that natural flow of life and how it is supposed to be in a healthy world . In life sometimes we need to be the giver and other times we will need to be given to. I am grateful that so many people I know understand this theory. Thanks for the post it is a good reminder, Oh and I just read from Becky's Blog at " heart in hand" about the art thief. I am sooo sorry. Oh and another thing too my life has been a bit off kilter and I found out I missed you when you passed through SF. Was that on the trip back from being with your Dad? how is he doing? hugs Julie
