Love and a Work in Progress

February 14th, 2012

Happy Valentine's Day to all you creative souls!

I had a lot of fun making a little Valentine for the hubster with Miss Annabelle. I traced her hand and doodled some hearts on tracing paper. And she added her own touches with some dots and lines. So sweet! Later I took the tracing paper, taped it over some colored paper and wrote in a Valentine's Day message. Writing it out in chunky pastels, I unintentionally made it look like Annabelle wrote the message herself. haha! He loved it. :-)

This week, I've been working in bits in pieces on a larger piece that's been a work-in-progress for a long time. And it still is! It's been more challenging to work on larger pieces because I don't have big chunks of time right now, but it's coming along. I had the original idea back when Annabelle was a newborn. Up late at night, I had the image pop into my head of a woman nursing in the middle of the forest, surrounded by night animals and trees. In the summer, I started the collage background. During Art Every Day Month, I dove into it. And then I set it aside for a while. I'd love to finish it up during this month of Night! We'll see if I can wrap it up. I don't want to rush it either, but it's getting closer!

Miss Anabelle is certainly very creative and artistic…clever idea, no wonder he loved it:)

Hello Leah, wow this latest piece of yours really is a favourite, I simply love it, and it is inspiring, I’ve been thinking of maybe doing a moon piece. Your night theme is certainly lingering for me. xx

Wonderful creation and fun! ~ Love your ‘Night’ art work ~ namaste, carol ^_^ (A Creative Harbor)

Hi Leah, I love what you’re creating. You will finish it : )

Hello Leah!

I came across your work some years ago, but only just started to look deeper into what you’re doing after listening to your interview from the Art + Money Guide.

I’m inspired by your personal vision and your aim to live life authentically. Also, your nursery is beyond gorgeous and makes me happy :)

Anyway, I just wanted to say that it’s so great to find your work again. I’ve signed up for Creative Every Day a second time and I’m so excited. This time I have a better chance of sticking to it, because I’ve been posting a photo on my Daily Image blog every day since Jan 1st.

Looking forward to connecting with you and your work more :)

Two very lovely and personal pieces, Leah. I love Annabelle’s card for her daddy, and the connection to nature in your night piece.
