Love Sand

 

“When I was twelve years old, the world was my magic lantern, and by its green spirit glow I saw the past, the present and into the future. You probably did too; you just don’t recall it. See, this is my opinion: we all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand.”  ~Robert McCammon

Perfect Now

“The universe is, instant by instant, recreated anew. There is in truth no past, only a memory of the past. Blink your eyes, and the world you see next did not exist when you closed them. Therefore, the only appropriate state of the mind is surprise. The only appropriate state of the heart is joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment is now. Be glad of it.” ~Terry PratchettCloudy Water Leaf by OliveLoaf Design

Adjusting Sails

Here is a completed paper mache sailing ship with fabric sails. Up-cycled cereal box, paper bags, newspaper & denim; string, dowels, glue, embroidery & acrylic paint. I will be making more of these. So inspiring to try new techniques as this is based on a pattern/design by my idol, artist Ann Wood. Having one of those weeks…wish it was life size so I could sail away.
