Hello -- Just found you all here. I had a hunch that there must be a gang of creatives here somewhere ;) And that poem!

I called this painting "Giant" because she is so small (The girl I referenced was just 4 years old) but seems to be towering over our world. She's oil, spray paint, oil pastel and sharpie marker and probably 40 x 40" I was able to trade her for a painting from another artist I had wanted for years. :)

Hi tinyturtle from Fullerton! I especially like how you rendered the fabric and used lines and drawn shapes in the landscape; that you didn't try to fully paint everything as it is, but suggested. It's nice. Over her right shoulder, it almost looks like the land consists of petroglyphs. Nice touch.

There are so many gifted women here, I'm amazed, but I am seriously too lazy and egotistic about my work to post it. No, seriously. Also I am a lazy procrastinator who's also a perfectonist.

But I'm glad you guys do.

Very striking and beautiful tinyturtle. You are a gifted artist. I love how you captured the expression on her face--her serious mesmerizing gaze.

I lay around for 4 or 5 weeks healing after my mastectomy and then found out I had to have 12 weeks of chemo. I decided I wanted to have something to show for all this time off from the the job I love. I've stolen moments my whole working life to do art. The last couple of years I've done stain glass and had some scraps. I let my stain glass community know that this mosaic was my chemo plan and found a 5 gallon bucket of beautiful glass scraps on my door step. I have one week to my last round of chemo and this is my 'good week'. I hope to get it done and grout it. Its for my patio and the image was inspired by my new garden.

I scrolled through the 30+ pages of this thread. What a lot of beautiful creations and a wide variety of media! Many talented forum participants. Lovely.

I've been a photo enthusiast most of my life. Can't count how many photos I've taken but an injury to my ankle about six years ago significantly impacted my photo taking style and mobility. The following is one of my personal favorites, taken at the Louvre in 2006. It is one of seven photos taken in the Louvre that was exhibited in a photo gallery in Finland.

viewfinder: that photo is stunning. I love it.

rachelcarter: Your stained glass project is lovely., and I'm incredibly impressed with how big it is, your skill level, and how much you've accomplished. I know that stained glass is challenging and a LOT of work!

Amica thank you. That means a great deal to me as your poem completely blew me away. Mosaic is surprisingly easy compared to stained glass and very satisfying because its more spontaneous and free. Its more like painting in glass. Its also surprisingly quick compared to stained glass.

Rachel,

Beautiful! I played around with the idea of trying something similar......but I get cellulitis so quickly I was afraid I would cut myself!

I will watch for the finished piece!

Amica,

Wonderful photo. The ladies on the Picture This thread would enjoy seeing this.
