What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday: Mother and Child


Well, that's the state of my desk, hardly anything has changed except for more piles of stuff all around (even on top of my laptop!)  I was so tempted to clean up before taking the picture but then, what's the point of WOYWW if I don't show you the real thing.  (Visit Julia if you want to join or know more about WOYWW).

But, there is no more space to work comfortably so as soon as I took this picture, I started putting things in their proper places - pencils in the mugs, scissors in the blue container on the left, rubber stamps in a box on the shelf, ink pad in a bottom drawer, checkbook(!) also in a drawer, throw out the water... I am not yet done.

I have made some progress in the Mother and Child piece I am working on and perhaps it is finished (who knows)...

I added a bit of gold stamping, colored pencil, magazine paper, a flower stamp and some text from a clipping from a devotional.  It goes...
 
"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paint his own nature into his pictures." 
Henry Ward Beecher

and...

"In everything we create, works of art, music, literature, even our children - a bit of ourselves is revealed."

And the devotional goes on to say, "the same is true of God; each of us reveals a bit of Him."  Thinking of my own children, and looking at this Mother and Child piece, I remember the verses in Ephesians 2:10, "You are God's work of art."  And so, I delight to think that we are all beautiful in some way, because we are made "in His own image. Genesis 1:27

Anyone want to suggest a title for my Mother and Child?

Right now my work table is still covered in beads and chain and bits from getting ready for our Grandsons wedding last Saturday. Tomorrow I really must get it all straightened out so I can work on some more new pieces.
I love you Mother and Child, beautiful work..

My work table is still strewn with beads, chain and bits and pieces from getting pieces made for my Grandsons wedding. Now that the wedding is over I can finally clean my mess and start on some new pieces for the shop.

Love you Mother and Child, very very pretty.

Fantastic art work as always - in view of the devotional and clipping, how about "A Mother's Masterpiece" as a title?
