Creative Spaces (in progress)

This week's space in my creative life include some happy packages for the nieces of one of my bestest friends, a happy watercolor painting and a happy chalk dancer.  Take a peek, say hi and visit other creative spaces here

The happy packages included tile necklaces, matted art prints and bookmarks for 3 little girls:




Painting this made me happy for no reason at all...
watercolor paints on 12x14 canvas
the work in progress stages:

and lastly, a chalk and oil drawing on 14x17 paper that I am a bit unsatisfied with and need to continue working on...

Thanks for visiting! :)

Roger Casanova - The Artist

For my birthday this year I treated myself to some art from Roger Casanova, whom I've been enamored with since the first time I stumbled into his shop.  When my package arrived, I was squealing in delight!!!   Not only are his art pieces created with passion depicting loving embraces but the package itself was mailed with such care, such l♥ve!  It took me a bit to get them framed but now that they are, I couldn't resist sharing!   Take a looksie!

Encassed in heavy, sturdy cardboard were these little beauties,
wrapped in tissue paper and tied with ribbon in lovely thick portfolios:
 Close-up of his business card (links at the bottom of this post):

I framed them in black frames showing a white gap
(and enclosing his portfolio covers because they were mounted so beautifully with what looks like torn-edge, I hear its called "deckle edge" a bit hard to see in the photos) 

This drawing is titled "Love All Ways"
Not "love always", but "Love ALL ways"! This art piece took a little more time to produce. A bit more intricate than my other "heart art". Recreating yet another moment of what should be a beautiful time in sharing our love and love of life with those we enjoy sharing it with.
---------------------------
This drawing is titled "El Sueno (The Dream)"
Pronounced (Swen-yo)

For those who love to dream...for those that are moved by dreams...for those that believe SHE IS "the dream"! The inspiration for this piece mainly came from my believing that "she is" the dream. Everything about her makes her truly beautiful...and forever in our hearts.
---------------------------

This drawing is titled "She Loves Me"
A moment in time we should always cherish. When you don't think about anything else...when all that matters is the love she gives...and the love she takes.
-----------------------

All three drawings:





Please take a moment to visit Roger and consider making a purchase... I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

wips

I'm having camera issues...
so I can't post what I REALLY want to post which is a review of artist Casanova... hopefully next week!


Instead I'm posting these from my journal...  


In continuing my fire theme as of late is
another fire girl:


There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark.
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare.

See how I'll leave, with every piece of you
Don't underestimate the things that I will do.

There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark.

The scars of your love, remind me of us.
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside your hand
And you played it
To the beat

Baby I have no story to be told
But I've heard one of you and I'm gonna make your head burn,
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there as mine sure won't be shared

The scars of your love, remind you of us.
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
We could have had it all
