an offering


if you occasionally stop by my blog, you will surely have noticed that these petals are something i am working on... 


immersing myself in...


experimenting with... 


desiring to make many of...


in different metals


with a few choice phrases, words, mantras...


i happened to notice that i had surpassed 400 posts the other day...


my 400th is when the petals were born... 




so i would like to share one with you to express my gratitude for your coming by and thoughtfully reading and expressing what you have to say - 


just leave a comment, nothing fancy... 


the recipient will be chosen on monday... 




in peace -

  23. One of the best things I learned in art school was to just keep working into a piece, keep pushing the boundaries of the idea and the design -- you have been delving into and exploring these leaves and they continue to evolve into something special. There are no coincidences, are there? 400 posts-- a feat to celebrate as well, as each one is its own little milestone with its well-thought out and expressed ideas. Congratulations! Here's to the next 400.

  26. MD- amazing just how the posts tick by adding up so silently one at a tome. Great milestone - congratulations - and thanks for the continuing journey of your creations. I would really love to see what a stash of you mixed metal and mixed message petals look like. The soft shape of the petals certainly are in tune with the messages. Go well. B

  36. Hi Mary Jane-
    I'm just back from travels and finally finding the time to catch up with friends-- I know your contest is over- but I'm taking the time anyway to tell you that these petals are fabulous. I love that you put words of strength and encouragement on them. AND I absolutely LOVE the tinge of pink.

    Hmmmm- might these work for that special project I talked to you about?

    I love that you are creating so earnestly-- and that you seem happy-
    Love
    Vicki
