A Little Art Exchange


Gorgeous, huh?  I think so too!  This was made by the wonderful Bev over at My Awakened Heart.  She wanted my painting "Don't Lose Heart" which I posted here,  and I love her art, so we did a little art exchange.  I love this piece... the colors, the bird, the message, the way she paints on and in between the papers so they look like tiles.  It's wonderful.














It's going to hang in my studio to inspire me and remind me to remember to slow down, be still, and listen...something I am not that good at, especially lately.









Thank you Bev, I LOVE IT!!!


*****************************
This is what I sent off the her....Here's a little refresher of what "Don't Lose Heart" looks like (the red heart is not as bright in person...sorry, not that important, but it bugs me...perfectionist, remember).


















I made a coordinating card (below) for Bev...



 painted a bit on the box...


and wrote a little message that came to me, before sending the art off to it's happy new home.

Hi Esther! Nice when you visited my blog. You make great art, I have not got around to anything yet Texture Town. Feel that I am really stuck and other works are so awesome, maybe I'll get something done eventually ...
Glad to know you :-)
