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.

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.

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.

I fear and admire spiders in equal measure. A poem:


Superior Spiders


Spiders laugh all the time,

only we don't know it.

They love shadow. They love warmth,

suspended in the incalescence they have spun.

How many times have you created

housing that will catch for you your daily meal?


Spiders have it all over us.

They can run a mean 100 millimeter dash,

and disappear into a crack.

Can you? I didn't think so.

Spiders kiss behind the bushes,

and don't bother with addresses like Mr. or Mrs.


Spiders can crash wherever they land,

make a life and home anew

out of mere symmetry and dew.

Even after a nasty fall,

each wears a weather-coated

parachute of sorts that softens all spills

and makes a safe start of all.


Spiders can bite and deploy massive armaments,

against objects twenty thousand times their size.

They can poke you right between your eyes,

as they did my mother, or any other.


Spiders create soundless trilling symphonies

perfect in their arching incalculability.

How did such a small creature

learn of such rhapsody,

without a notebook or a teacher all together?


Have you ever seen a spider forced in line to wait?

Have you ever seen a spider on a date?

Have you ever seen a spider with a mate?

I haven't. Like I said,

spiders have it all over us.

I love it! I love how you capture the idea of how the spider might perceive us, as an avalanche, a hurricane or a spinning galaxy....our world...their world...

There is a great article somewhere online about a remarkable spider species that lives for decades, in Australia I think. They build nests in the ground and cover the doorway with a pile of matchstick twigs, and live in that nest for their lifetime, and lay their eggs there. They emerge only to mate I believe. Some biologists have been researching these spiders, and tracking them by counting the number of organized nests that remain year after year. They found one exceptionally long-lived spider, and grew to admire her, only to find recently that wasps had invaded the spider's nest and destroyed it and its home. If I can find the article I'll post the link :)

If you go to that article through "incognito mode" in Google Chrome, you can read some free Washington Post articles.

On the other hand, if you google "the death of the oldest living spider," or "Spider 16" there are a bunch of articles elsewhere, although that was the best one because it showed the nest.

Hi back Amica

Found an article on Spider 16 in National Geographic. Fascinating. Loved the info about how ancient a species some spiders are.

" Trapdoor spiders are one of the most ancient species on Earth. They first appeared around the Triassic, and have remained relatively unchanged over the hundreds of millions of years compared to other spiders"

Imagine! Here during the Triassic Period...!

Thanks for the info Amica.
