Wishes for a Blessed and Peaceful Christmas

It's only a few days to go now before
we celebrate the birth of Christ
with "Christmas"
and I wish to send everyone and especially my blog readers
wishes from our heart and home
for a very Blessed and Merry Christmas.

Peace in my heart and in yours
and
in everyone all around the world.

Ethereal Angels

With very little effort suddenly
finished
on my worktable are these two cards
with the most beautiful angel images that I just discovered!



 More layers of frothy chiffon and laces under and over
the images they go!





Thank you so very much to everyone for your incredibly
kind comments and your purchases - they just keep me creating more
and
these now are available for sale too in my Etsy shop !

Sunshine after Rain brings a New Angel Creation

In my last post I mentioned that we were having
rain and thunderstorms - well after
9 inches of constant rain
over 24 hours
the creek on our property was flowing flat out 

The roar of the water from our back door
sounded like a freight train passing through!
Most of the time this water remains at just a trickle. 





and after the rain comes a cacophony of frog sounds 
as the sun starts flooding in
- such an amazing view from our
garden room
with newly transplanted rose bushes now steaming ahead 


in the company of the white Wisteria and lilac Clematis!


 The sunshine accentuates the vividness of the green 
ornamental Grapevine along the verandah
and
the beautiful Ornamental Manchurian Pear trees.


 Everything is feeling so fresh and renewed again
filling the plants and trees with new found energy
in readiness for the long
Summer ahead.


 Hopefully many an evening over Summer
will be spent under this grapevine
as we start to tie our vine curtains back to let
in the light once again!
   
 

From my studio the Angel "Messenger" has been created.





 



She's now available for sale in my Etsy.

in the hand that gives the rose".

Angels at My Door Again!

 In my part of the world when we should be 
seeing blue skies and Australian Summer sunshine
we are experiencing
constant rain, storms, thunder and lightening
but it is warm and for that I am grateful
as
I continue to create it seems a never ending pile of
Angel greeting cards.








and quite frankly I really couldn't think of many more
things to please my heart and soul
  
 as the exercise in choosing and manipulating fabrics
like satin, silk, chiffon and lace




 keep challenging me to find an expression that is truly me
 


but one which is ever evolving!
Can you see how much I love texture and layering?
 
 

 The subjects may often be the same but


 the way in which they are incorporated into my artwork
I never tire of.

 

If you love angels then one of these could be yours
as they are now available in my Etsy shop.
