"Cast a spell...Drink wicked good brew...Seek magic...Reach for the stars...Dance in the moonlight...Ride the wind..."
Words of wisdom, and so much fun to paint! It's listed on eBay now, although I was truly tempted to keep it here as a centerpiece for the dining room table I'm painting. Well, okay, the dining room table I WILL paint, I swear it! This six foot pine table has been leaning against a wall in my living room for over two years now (embarassing, huh?) but one of these days it will be transformed into a huge piece of FUNctional art. I just need a few more hours in a day, days in a week, weeks in a month, etc...
I know, I know - I'm not alone in this time crunch.....I think many of us are feeling the pressure these days - working longer hours, trying to keep up in this economy. But I'm also incredibly encouraged by the support out there for artists and artisans; the effort people are making to buy handmade goods. To me, buying something someone created with their own hands is not only good for the economy, but good for the soul.... And I can't even begin to describe the feeling that comes from knowing someone loves something I've created enough to buy it...and to send my creations out into the world knowing they'll bring a little joy or magic, it just doesn't get any better than that. :)
Sooooooo, speaking of magic, I have this little video to share with you. It's not new, and I'm sure many of you have already seen it, but if you haven't, it's well worth the watch. Oh, and it's better if you have your speakers on. ;)
Wasn't that great?!
I'm off now to create a little of my own magic here, which involves the morning music/candles/tea ritual before settling in....I'm working on a couple of commissions this week (just a wee bit behind schedule as usual) but also hope to have something very special to share with you soon - something light and ethereal and ultra finely detailed (stay tuned!)
Until next time.....
