open and gracious

  6. she's beautiful, such a lovely illustration. thats a very impressive wood pile-you must have a massive fire place-we'd have to chop those bits up several more times to fit in our wee woodburner!

  9. YaY! Autumn Moon! It's a new moon at the moment, that means darkness and no moon in view so it's lovely to see a moon in the sky in your painting!

  18. Hi Tammie,

    Lovely details in the background. The moon's face seems to be speaking to the young woman. And after reading your poem, I see that they have a silent communion. How I'd like to be in the forest now:)

    And look at all the trees in your photo! That must be a good workout cutting and piling that wood.

  19. hello everyone,
    thank you for your wonderful comments, I love your friendship and support!

    As for the wood:
    yes those pieces in the pile are TOO big, so yesterday I split them all and stacked them. So sore! So tired, but feeling strong and good.

    Kristen, the foliage at the edges was done with Tim Holtz distress stains, fun and easy to play with!

    lovely art day to you all.

  28. The colours you've used are really lovely.

    Your woodpile is a good start - although I hear this will be a long, cold winter!!!

    Thank you for visiting me today :)

  29. She's beautiful! Her face is so pretty and soft with those big blue eyes.

    Your wood pile reminded me that it's almost time to get our firewood for the winter. There's nothing cozier that a fire in the fireplace on a cold evening.

  30. The face on this painting is just lovely and I have always wanted to live somewhere cold enough to need a fire... we barely need a blanket in winter here... and it is glorious spring here now xx

  31. Is she you? I like her very much.
    Are the you the wood splitter??

    ReplyDelete
  32. So magical, Tammie! I think I'm her kindred spirit because the moon and I can be inseparable... :D

    So nice to see you all prepared for winter. Keep warm! oxx

  33. warm hugs to you all for your lovely visits.

    Sandy, I am the wood splitter, along with using a gas operated splitter. Still moving a cord of wood many times yesterday wore me out! I am not doing manual labor today ;-)

    Tracey, I use to live somewhere that rarely got chilly. I love being able to wear boots and scarves, sweaters and the air is divine to breathe.

    many thanks.
    Tammie

  34. Hi Sandy,
    Nope she is not me, well not a self portrait, I still have to try that some day. I will have to learn how to draw wrinkles ;-)

    but in spirit, I suppose it is very much me.

    thanks for asking.
    Someone on FB thought she looks like my sister.

  54. I love your painting, the beautiful colours and the little touch of the female face in the moon. I always think of the moon as feminine.

    Looks like you are in for a warm, cozy winter. Although you are sure to keep warm if you keep coming outside to chop more wood!
