I bought myself a webcam yesterday - as you can tell, mainly so that the anklebiters can have a chat with their dad and see him too. But I soon realised how darn easy it was to make a quick video and just email it to someone or post it to youtube too... Anyway, I don't think I'll be making a habit of this - but just 'coz I can, here goes!
That's me - the big fat pink one - in case you hadn't picked it. And Happy Jack's contribution on the right hand side. If you can't afford to have original art pieces on your walls, then choof yourself off to Bunnings, or Spotlight or the Two Buck store even and pick yourself up a large canvas - I think this one was in the order of $24. Some acrylic paint tubes and brushes is all it takes to make something original, beautiful and meaningful. I added of course the words, be kind. Love each other. This painting is hanging in the kids' room and I just love it. Us three, cool.
It's a mixed media piece - papers, paint, gel medium, cardboard tag, purple ink (you can't see that lovely colour in the photo!) netting, and the elements in the top right hand section are a photo frame, key and feather butterfly. I recently bought these Dr Ph Martin's inks and am so pleased with them! They are so vibrant and easy to use - just paint on with a paint brush. I'm still experimenting but looking forward to using them heaps more...
There were lots of words I thought about writing here such as: friendship, peace, unity, compassion and empathy but when it all boils down, I think the best way to live in community with others is just to love people - practically. Love is a verb I say and it is as simple and as difficult as that.
Hopefully there will be another one to post tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by, X Me.
This wall is a bit ugly but I'll start working on getting some originals up there soon...
And looking back to the window from the corner. It's not a huge room, but it's a great space - and the window is great looking out onto the verandah. It just fits everything perfectly and comfortably - now all I have to do is start to create! So watch this space ladies and gentlemen!
