Art Inspirations...

This is my button bowl I finished last night... I found the inspiration for this piece in the Australian Home Beautiful mag, October 2006, a few days before I began my class. Serendipity! Especially considering I had to delay attendance by two terms *grin*

The original is by Kate Dorrough, Bowl #7 for Orson & Blake. Hers is stunning.. which is why it is $380 !!


I REALLY love Kate's other artworks too, her collages are spectacular!

I am also loving... Catherine Swan and her Papillons de Papier, and have for a while now. Hopefully I will create my own over the Christmas break. JOY JOY! I am really excited about it because it has been on my TTD list forever!

These two sisters I discovered yesterday... and their company MOZI, very kewl stuff !

Inspiring me constantly is Goddess Leonie Allan.... my clever and brilliant friend! Is Here and Here on her agents website... Indigo Connections (so is SARK)... WOWSERS!! . I am so proud of you Leones... you big hottie! AND.... we are having lunch together today... whooohhhoooo!!

I have learnt so much from this young lady.... SO MUCH. At our September gathering of our womens circle... we created a dreamboard. I have always done this in various forms, such as my visual diaries. When I flick through them I see that I have accomplished many things from those diaries, infact... usually those things and more!. Having my canvas dreamboard hanging in my studio, means that I see it daily... it always makes me smile and realise that all my dreams are coming true for me. I love that I have that power over *my* life. As Leones says "joy is an option".... I say happiness is a choice! I encourage everyone to create a dreamboard of their own... its very powerful. And you can make another anytime you are called to do so.

I have a number of journals in the works at the moment... will share those soon too.

Here is to living our dreams.... THE REALLY BIG ONES!
*** totally grinning my head off for Leones, for us all***
Love and hugs...
