Have been hard at work!

Hi! I've just listed some more of my canvas pieces on Etsy. The first one below, took some thinking about, but I finally got it to look exactly how I wanted! 

I titled this one "Blessings".....what more of a blessing than a mother's love to a child? I saw this picture recently of a mother and her child and wondered what I could do with it to turn it into something special. I got inspiration from the fact it shows a mother reading to her child. I've always read to my children, right from the time they were very small. I believe that if you read well, you learn well, and that reading is most often the number one basis of acquiring knowledge. However, reading is something that we shouldn't take for granted, although many of us tend to! In this way it reminds me of a mother's love.....a basic and fundamental thing that we all take for granted but would miss terribly if it ceased to be. 

So, what do you think?!

It's strange how some pieces can come together quickly and some not so easily! This next collage just fell into being within a matter of minutes. I love the color mix on this one! 

I called this one "Cherish". The definition quoted refers to nurturing and protecting. Another children theme.....don't we all love to nurture and protect the children in our lives?? If only we could all adopt this to one another too..........what a better world we could create if we did!

As a reminder, my Etsy shop is at:

I've ideas for loads more collage on canvas items so keep dropping by the store. As I complete them, so I'll be listing them!

Thanks for following!
