What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Paints

Dear blog friends, thank you so much for dropping by!  I have been quite busy and haven't been able to go visiting so please forgive me if I haven't been able to return your visits.  I will try to do better this week.  I still haven't had the time to tidy up and the pile on my desk is even higher, this time with my paint tray on top.

Here is the Mother and Child I was working on.  I haven't decided if it is finished or if I will go back to it later.  Meanwhile, I started on another painting, just so that I would have something new on my desk to show you...

There's still time for you to join my giveaway.  If you want a chance to win one of my original paintings, please leave a comment in my giveaway post.  

Drop by Julia's Stamping Ground and get a peek at more desks!

Edit:  And because it is now Friday and I didn't have time to make a new post, I thought I'd share my paintings here with blog friends from Paint Party Friday and Studio Sneak Peek as well!

Just a quick post to share with you my WIP.  I started out with a piece of Illustration board, glued on some scraps of music sheet images and scrap papers, did some stamping and covered it with a light layer of gesso. And if you have been visiting me for some time, you'll know that the mother and child theme is one of my favorites.

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Macau Souvenirs

If you visited me last week for the weekly WOYWW link party, it may seem like I got to do some tidying up this week...

But alas, that pile from last week is even higher because of some souvenirs which I collected from our trip to Macau over the weekend.  On the top of the pile is the ticket to an awesome show we watched, "The House of Dancing Water."

If ever you are in Macau, be sure to watch it!

I got to do a bit of painting, and here is my WIP...

If you haven't yet, there's still time for you to join my giveaway!  One comment in my giveaway post will give you a chance to win your choice of one of my original paintings.  

Drop by Julia's Stamping Ground and get a peek at more desks!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Nothing New

It's been a very busy week, with absolutely no time for play! And so there's nothing new to see!  Here are my paintings for my giveaway.  If you want to have a chance to win, just leave me a comment in my giveaway post (more chances to win if you are a follower)!  

On the other side, is a pile of stuff that I need to put away.  I hope my desk will be cleaner next week for our weekly show and tell, WOYWW!

And in case you were hoping to see some art, here are a few pages from my prayer journal...

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: WIP and a Giveaway

On my desk today is a Low-Carb cookbook I bought for the equivalent of £ 0.30 or $ 0.48 (has anyone tried this and does it work?), a WIP and a clearbook binder filled with letters I've collected honoring a friend who is celebrating his birthday soon.  Here's a closer look at the mother and child I started.

I finally got to make my giveaway post and if you would like a chance to win one of these paintings, leave me a comment on my giveaway post (not on this WOYWW post).

For a peek at more desks or to show off your own, Julia has the WOYWW list!

Giveaway Girls

I have finished my giveaway girls!  Each one of them is an original mixed media piece (5 3/4" x 9") painted on book paper coated with gesso, with text I added using the direct image transfer method.  The first one reminds us - "Seek and you will find."   

As we seek, let us "Find joy in the journey."  This painting has book paper circles and a shawl made of real lace. 

And for me, "The joy of the Lord is my strength."  This one also has a shawl made of real lace.

If  you would like a chance to win one of these three paintings simply leave a comment on this post telling me which one you would choose.

For more chances to win, please leave a separate comment if...

1.  You are a follower,
2.  You posted about this giveaway or posted a picture on the sidebar of your blog (linked to this post). 

I will be using the random number generator, so please make sure you leave me a comment for each entry you make.  I will pick the winner after a month.

Linking this up in Paint Party Friday!
