WOYWW: The Light Shines

After a long time of not getting any art done (other than my prayer journal illustration), I started on some ATCs, first gluing on book paper backgrounds and then painting over it.  Yay!

I am practicing a more "painterly" style than my usual style in my prayer journal illustration.

Today is the 40th day since my mother passed away.  In the Philippines, we usually mark this day with a memorial mass and a "celebration" dinner.  Don't ask me why, I have no idea. Although it has been a difficult time, these words from John 1:5 describe how God's love and his promises of eternal life have been a light to overcome the darkness of grief.  

And as I am in the habit of doing, I share my desk with Julia and the WOYWWers and my illustration with Word Art Wednesday. Blessings to you today as you visit me.

Wow, it must be hard to 'change' styles - a nice exercise for you - and rather typically, I like it! I really need to think about ATCs too. Meanwhile, the 40 at least gives you a chance to have reflected and to celebrate your beautiful Mother's life rather than mourn her loss which is something one does more naturally on a daily basis.

If I could I would give you a real hug! Losing your mom is always so very hard, it has been 12 years for me, and I still sometimes catch myself thinking I should phone her and tell her something.
Love your artwork.
Happy WOYWW.

Beautiful work, Peggy - I love the painting over the book page - this is something I'd love to try. Your prayer journal page is as lovely as ever. I am so sorry to hear about your Mum - we lost my Dad in early December so know what you are going through.

Many thanks for your visit and your nice comments on my blog - so glad you like the teabag zentangles! I am having great fun exploring this new area of art for me, and can't believe how much potential can be found in the humble teabag. Doing a Google image search for "Teabag Art" reveals the most astonishing creations!!

Have a great weekend. Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #48
