I loved seeing your “LOVE” sign from New Orleans! SO FUN and you know I am all about the love! I was thinking about how love can lift you up. You and our friendship lift me up in so many ways and I wanted you to know. Dragonflies are a repeated theme in my work because of what they symbolize~staying present and living for today. I added the heart to remind me to look at those around me with compassion and love.
Laura’s Visoin 2: Script
I have been intrigued by your Vision photo with the cool colors, tree branch pattern (that inevitably makes its way into all my artwork), and the layered quality of reflection and textures. I was surprised to have difficulty getting started on this ReVision. I suspect it is because I liked the photo too much. Looking back I think I should have used your photo in some way by creating a photo transfer print. I am still not thrilled with my result and see that I could use some more time in the editing phase, but wanted to make a solution to post this weekend. I have been preoccupied with some of my drawings which I will post at a future date. At any rate, I see all these Vision/ReVision’s as works in process. I think this is what makes it work for us. They are small enough to really get an idea going or create multiple solutions to one question we have in our work. I created three different versions of this one and eventually settled on “capture” as my Script element. This one has a textured element. It is one to hold and feel as much see. The thread seemed to ‘tie’ it all together in the end.
Not only is it Valentine’s day it also happens to be L2T’s TWO year Anniversary!
We can hardly believe it has been TWO years since we started this blog! We have grown so much and feel so blessed that you have chosen to come along with us in our journey. Both of us are inspired by acts of kindness and would like to share these postcards with you in a little Anniversary giveaway. They are from our Vision/ReVison project and are printed on a warm, buff watercolor paper with a deckled edge, they are hand stamped on the back and individually packaged in an eco friendly package. Laura painted a little heart in honor of the day which will also be included. They will soon be available for sale in our Etsy shop!
Simply leave us a comment below letting us know how someone has shown you kindness. This can be great or small, as every act of kindness is significant and will inspire others. The winner will be picked randomly on FRIDAY. We are trying to encourage conversation on the blog so if you leave a comment on any post this week, we will enter your name again! Sending warmth and love your way…Laura & Tina
