joanne said...

oh so incredibly true... because art is life and life is art... and you express both so incredibly beautifully...

"PART OF THE ART OF LIVING IS LIVING WITH ART"....and as you've so nicely demonstrated, SEEING!!

A quietude of place and thought that knows not how to dissemble.

I really like the style you have shown lately with cutout art. I think I may make my Christmas cards using the same theme this year.

Lucky you! I wish I could have gone too....I would recognize that hand/bird artwork anywhere ; )

"Quiet moments of life art happen everyday" ... but I'm not always quiet enough to see it ... your blog helps because it takes me into a different way of seeing the world ... less structured and more creative than mine ... thanks

Caroline said...

Simply wonderful...love the world through your eyes.

This is gorgeous - I just posted on Life and Art yesterday - but with my kids during school holidays. Thought my art had to take a back seat but then reasoned that 'Life is Art' so who cares whether mine or kiddies. Lovely post. Happy to have stumbled across you...

I love the way you present the things in life that you see - it is art, in and of itself.
