it's time for faces! :-)
a tiny acrylic and marker on paper (12 x 12 cm)
There's a video at the end of this post.
It's what i was listening to while i painted last night...
the whole CD, not just the one song. :-)
and then there's this woman...
i love Jane Goodall, and what she's done with her life.
My first ever blog post was a little watercolor of Jane and a friend...
you can see it here.
I was a woman of few words when i first began blogging.
Now i won't shut up.
I had a hard time with this one...
i seem to have made her look much older
- something i'm not so sure she would like.
but it is what it is.
Sometimes there's a likeness,
and sometimes less.
I certainly tried to give her compassionate eyes.
Whenever i see her on tv, that's always what i notice about her first.
Those peaceful, loving, compassionate eyes.
You can see a lot in a person's eyes.
I then took time to finish this one too -
just added the word and a few magical dots.
I kinda like it.
I hope you all know how much i appreciate
your kind comments.
The thing that makes me the happiest
is knowing that sometimes,
I may actually inspire someone out there
to make art
or write poetry
or take a walk outside
or listen to music
or bake a cake
or notice the moon
or write a song...
or just be more appreciative of something.
That makes me happy.
Because i believe these are the things
that give life meaning -
and there are too many of us out there
waiting until we retire to find meaning in our lives.
hugs to all of you...
hope you like the song
