Today I spent All Day, yes ALL DAY painting, collaging and getting messy. I loved it :)
Now I need to draw a little string from her finger to her heart, then add some words.......
I'm thinking "Hold onto your heart"
This thinking comes about from a couple of things - the first being that I recently saw my father let his heart go to someone in China - who wasn't who he thought she was, he was besotted by emails written by an interpreter not the girl in his 'pictures' and thus had his heart hurt :(
I think we must hold onto our hearts, and not give them away too easily, without really knowing who we are tending them to.
I want to be sure that my heart isn't hurt again, and I'm holding onto it really tight at the moment - perhaps a little too tight, as I'm not able to let the love in.
So I guess finding a balance, as we have to do with most things, is the trick.
I hope you enjoyed my painting -
Thanks also goes to Tam from Lifebook for all the different lessons, inspirations and prompts along this my creative journey for 2012.

My daughter Bec shared this link with me and I think this is a MUST READ AND ANSWER challenge!
I would also love to hear your responses.
How about a blog post of your own?
I would welcome the link to your post, so we can 'share' our answers & journal pages with each other.
Asking the right questions is the answer…
It’s not the answers you get from others that will help you, but the questions you ask of yourself. Here are 40 thought-provoking questions to help you refresh and refocus your thinking:

I've been a little preoccupied lately - sorting things for my upcoming Art Market has taken up a lot of my time. I've been designing labels, packaging and products for the market. This has kept me a little distracted from other things - which is not a bad thing.
I also celebrated my 50th birthday, pics to come!
During my absence I have also been reading a lot about 'moving on from the stuff I need to move on from" - those of you who know me well and have followed my blog, will know exactly what I'm meaning! Things have been up and down in Lorri Land lately. Some days are much better, and some are just as bad as they were soon after my 'revelations' - One step at a time.
As for my art, I have been doing some tangling - which I absolutely love!! I've created a monster in a friend KAZ - now on flickr as 'Kaztangle" - LOVE HER NAME!
Ustream has been put aside a little as I focus on other things, but I still catch my lovely streaming friends on twitter, and try to check into some streams. I must say, I'm missing all the lovely ladies there, so will be back up and streaming soon!
Here's a few things I have worked on lately :
