Celebrating Samhain ~ Summer's End



born with a heart of knowing
remained due to upbringing
between
owls hoots and wolves singing
wisdom of bears and birds tweeting
call of the wind and water flowing
witch full of natures knowing
veils between seen and unseen now thinning
wisdom available reminds of hearts knowing
tis the season of internal remembering
~

Wishing you a wonderful Halloween
and Samhain Celebration!

also, in the actual piece of art, her hair is not orange,
it is shades of gold, but I could not show this on the scan, oh well.

  7. Kiki,
    Your response is so lovely and lively. Thank you so much! I shall raise a glass of red as well ;-}

    Beth,

    Ah, thank you for your response. I love seeing through your eyes. I think this is my first owl, it was fun to draw.


    Jen,
    Thank you, it was fun to win such lovely gifts.


    Sandy,

    For the moon: liquid pearls, for decorating paper or fabric, color pewter. I found it at a scrap booking store, comes in a wee bottle 1/2 fl. oz. Have fun!

    Brian,

    Seems that with both my photography and my drawing that poetry is part of it. So I am glad you enjoyed it. There is some texture in this, some shimmery paint and colored pencils.

    Cinner,

    Thank you. I wish you a lovely weekend too!

    warmth,
    Tammie

  16. What a beautiful smile she has! A beautiful witch, one I would not mind bumping into tonight. And the owl is adorable! I also love the metallic touches in the sky and on her very deep black, velvety looking chapeau.

    And beautiful mermaid below! I love her musical shape. You've moved beyond journals to canvases? Ooooh, how exciting!

    Happy Halloween to you! And happy Samhain! (I had to look that last one up. Thanks for the education!) Congratulations on your fantastic wins!

  17. Amber ~
    Many thanks for the lovely necklace.

    Janet,

    Thank you for your lovely visit and comment ~

    Lovely Faerie Moon,

    Thank you for your lovely visit!

    Rudhi,

    Of, of course Lady Mabon will celebrate. Thank you for stopping by, for looking around and for letting me know. Yes, home sweet is a wonderful place for dancing with nature and magical spirits.

    Diane,
    Thank you~

    Eva,

    So glad you enjoyed my witch .... and baby owl.

    JP/D.

    thank you for considering the poem... that means the world to me.

    Bella,

    Such a lovely response. I love seeing through your eyes ~ a musically shaped mermaid.... that is a wonderful perception.

    Mermaid a smooth thick paper and the witch witch a some what rough heavy sketch paper, both larger than the journal. I am still in my journal from time to time... but find I need a larger space to express myself. Still I run off the edges, do to not sketching out an entire piece of art at the beginning. I have a tendency to let my art reveal itself to me as I go along....

    Bella, you had to look up Samhain, I had to look up chapeau ;-}


    Happy Samhain to one and all!

    Tammie
