'he who nurtures benevolence for all creatures
within his heart overcomes all difficulties
and will be the recipient of all types of riches
at every step.'
these were my gift to my mom - using a new technique that i am in love with and will be using more... lampwork by mika at pinocean...
'i found i could say things with color and shapes
that i couldn't say any other way -
things i had no words for.'
~ georgia o'keefe
'pure emotion' was created in just this way... i was feeling a lot, too much to pull apart... and so i allowed the texture, color and technique to speak for me... beautiful enamel bead by barbara lewis and raku by keith o'connor...
and, as promised, a winner for my giveaway!
first, it had to be decided which child would get to pull the winner -
thank you to everyone who commented - some new faces and many old friends! i think the overwhelming sentiment was that blogging has connected us with wonderful people from all over... that we share, learn and are inspired by them... and that we cannot imagine life without these people and resources in it...
congratulations to doreen of backyard beads!
