That is AMAZING @ScorpionQueen! Well done, and lucky @primek!1
@ScorpionQueen Bella sits proudly on the wall near her favourite spot, the mat close by the dining table. I regular touch her face. X7
That is so beautiful @ScorpionQueen ! Such amazing detail and realism!
100% agree with art as therapy - it's kept me sane (well, some may say I never was 😁 ) through treatments and lockdowns!
I got some unstreched canvas and been having fun experimenting and not being too precious about the outcome. Here's a sunset I painted in acrylics last week. It's about 1m wide.
@StrongCoffee... love those colours! Agree with @jennyss very dramatic!2
@primek you made me tear up! That’s the best compliment I could ever get 💖1
WOW!! This Facebook video is just AMAZING!
Has anyone tried THIS method of needle stitch embroidery? It is amazing the details that can be produced from such large stitches!
I've been painting lots but keep forgetting to share. Here is one that I've entered into the Bluethumb art competition. Don't expect it to get chosen, but why not?!
That is LOVELY, @StrongCoffee - very dramatic! Good luck - that deserves a WIN!
Ahoy everyone, it's been a while! always so many great things to see here, very talented people!
I've continued to enjoy my writings, it soothes my soul Thought I'd share a couple with you all..
The indelible air wafts past me, dancing in melody,
invisibly in time.
Calm, peaceful, I find my ground, remembering inward I
breathe the intrepid possibilities of life,
Erasing the past, letting go of thoughts that no longer
Entwined in the ambiguous silence, my course unknown,
Valuable ethereal vibrations, in the pursuit of purpose,
Of something that ignites my soul, in a way giving beyond
For the sacrifice and gain of immeasurable humility.
I wander unknowingly wedged in the tide, hauled and
distanced from all that has meaning,
Losing grasp, pulled further with the current, lost, numb
with escaped thoughts,
I pray, in the discreet displaced noise with the inexhaustible
sound screaming in my ears,
Craving the impeccable clarity in each passing moment,
Labored with the thought of, if only..
The path to travel masked in confusion, as I hesitate, my desire
Propelled forward anchor-less, my inner truth clambers to
Trust in something unseen, faith in the implausible, as I am
delivered on my incredulous path.
A feeling, a surety, a doubtless comforting peace…..knowing IHugs M xo
Are there any clever cross stitch ladies in the forum?1
I bet there is, @gumnut ... I reckon @Annie C & @kmakm for a start ... my sister used to do it ... I tried it for 5mins on a plane to the UK in 1977 ... and it ended up in the bin! LOL
