Purple Heart. 8"x8". Watercolor.

Finally got the correct dimensions and kept it simple this time. It is just the purple heart with her name in the background and some of the same words as the last piece. I am happy with the way it turned out. I had grand ideas of using a linoleum cut block to press a buddha image over this, and layer some colors, but in the end, I just kept it simple. I also was a dumb ass yesterday and published my everyday post at 365. Ugh. I hate when I do that. If all my blogs didn't have the same name, that might help. Maybe they should be still life. stiller life, and stillest life.

I hear my husband blaring Sweet Home Alabama in his workshop, so I suppose that means he is no longer watching the children. Lynyrd Skynyrd is sign that Mama's work is never done. I feel creative today, so this might not be the last you hear from me.

And I think your people are getting more and more lovely every time you sketch. Every line has so much character.

Your yoga figure looks so at peace. The symbolism of the inverted heart is intriguing. I love the idea if adding a Buddha stamp on top. Very thought provoking!
